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.
Living in the culture-rich Central Highlands, the Brau people have formed their unique customs and culture, including traditional attire.
The Dao Thanh Y organize a peace worshiping ceremony in each of the 4 seasons of the year. A ceremony consists of 13 rituals involving martial arts performances. On today’s “Colorful Vietnam, Vietnam’s 54 ethnic groups”, Thanh Nga examines the peace worshiping ceremony of the Dao Thanh Y in Bang Ca commune, Hoanh Bo district, Quang Ninh province.
