    Gong culture preserved in Lam Dong

    The central highlands province of Lam Dong has approved a plan to preserve and promote the local gong culture, which has been recognised by UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity. The scheme aims to gradually restore the values of the gong culture as well as the traditional lifestyles of ethnic minorities in the province, as a way of safeguarding their cultural identity and providing a boost to local tourism. It also seeks to train a new crop of young instrumentalists who can protect and keep the gong culture alive. The gong culture is practised by 17 ethnic minority groups in five provinces in the central highlands - Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Lam Dong.
