"In the mind of a Vietnamese listener, spoiled for choice with the country's infinite wealth of musical forms and traditions, music from the imperial city of Hue has a very special place. This music is known and loved for its distinctive melodic beauty, with a typical dash of melancholy. Many believe that the origins of its particular charm are to be found in the cultural dominance of the Hindu kingdom of Champa for many centuries before and after 1000 A.D."
