An amateur music realm and composer Cao Van Lau

OTAVN – Bac Lieu is the birthplace of amateur music in association with renowned composer Cao Van Lau, who penned classic “A nostalgic nocturne for the husband”. A memorial area of the Southern amateur music and composer Cao Van Lau (Ninh Binh road, ward 2, Bac Lieu city) is deservedly a treasure to host amateur music legacy and a tourist hotspot for visitors to Bac Lieu.

Amateur music is a distinct folk music genre in association with the Southern people and culture. Derived from ritual music and Hue imperial court music mixed with folk chants and popular songs of the Southern delta, the Southern amateur music was recognized by the UNESCO as a Representative Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013. Despite its widespread establishment and development across 21 southern municipalities, Bac Lieu is still regarded the birthplace of the amateur music.

The memorial area spans more than 12,000sqm in total and includes the Moon shaped lute monument, statue of Cao Van Lau composer, musical instrument garden, the tomb of the late composer and his family, display hall and performance hall.
