The Inaugural Festival of Vietnamese Traditional Music in Australia is a unique show case of Vietnamese traditional music in the Australian context involving musicians and academics from different states of Australia. It aims to share the knowledge and talents of performers and researchers in Vietnamese music to both Vietnamese Australians and the wider
Đăng Lan
community. It also aims to preserve and develop Vietnamese traditional music in Australia, to continue a musical tradition which has been developed for over four thousand years and to contribute to the beauty and diversity of Australian musical culture and activities.

Vietnamese traditional music is highly diverse, including imperial court music & songs, folk music & songs, ritual music & songs, and entertainment music & songs. It has distinctive musical characteristics which combine both native and international traits.
