VietNamNet Bridge – Bai choi, 1,000-year-old folk music that is performed like a card game, is seeing a revival in the central ancient town of Hoi An.
It had disappeared for a while and in its new avatar is attracting foreign tourists and researchers.
One Swiss tourist lingered in Hoi An for a month though she had intended to stay for just two weeks.
At first she did not understand anything about bai choi but found it pleasing on the ear and eye.
She went on to register at a free bai choi class at the Hoi An Cultural Centre.
