HCMC - Two courses on how to safeguard Vietnam’s cultural heritage, with a focus on traditional Cham musical instruments ginang and paranung drums and saranai flute, have wrapped up in Binh Nghia and Bau Truc villages of Ninh Thuan Province.

Started in mid-October 2018, the courses took place every weekend by Cham master musicians for nearly 40 local school-aged children.

In the same manner, the community film club with young participants from Binh Nghia Village also completed its first three short documentaries on participants’ views on their own heritage.

These programs were carried out by the British Council in Vietnam to ensure that communities of heritage owners benefit from community-based efforts to safeguard and promote their cultural heritage.
