The Lo Lo are one of the many ethnic minorities in Vietnam, living for many generations in the Dong Van Rocky Plateau.
H’Mong minority ethnic group in the northern upland province of Son La celebrates the New Year a month earlier than the country’s traditional Lunar New Year, or Tet.
Adult Bana people periodically organize a thanksgiving ceremony to thank their parents for giving birth to them and bringing them up. VOV’s reporter To Tuan talks about this time-honored tradition.
Living close to nature, the Bana have made many musical instruments from available materials like stone, wood, bamboo, rattan, leaves and dried gourds. The hand-made musical instruments have unique shapes and sounds which distinguish Bana music from the music of other Central Highlands groups.
Wedding rituals and marriage are important in the life of the Bana. Although their wedding rituals have varied at different times and in different regions, some traditional features have been preserved until today.
