Subtitled: Minorities From The Central Highland And Coast. "Vietnam is a wonderfully rich country -- from a musical perspective! Here, on Music from Vietnam Vol. 5, one has for the first time the chance to become acquainted with music from nine of the more than fifty minorities living in the country. The recordings were made using a modern mobile digital studio in the central hills and on the coast of Vietnam, doing justice to a wholly unique and exciting world of timbres, a world that has lived its own life for hundreds of years and now is available to interested ears. They sing and play on drums, flutes, horns, rattles, bamboo, porcelain, and above all on gongs, handed down for generations. In a world where the wheels of communication spin ever faster, these peoples maintain and develop their cultural identities and their music. Meet Cham, Raglai, Bahnar, Xo-dang, and Giarai, and revel in their music from rites and religious ceremonies, work, and celebrations."
