About your host, pham khoa

Hey, I'm Khoa - a 25 years old guy based in Can Tho, Vietnam. Three years working in tourism have brought me some different insights about the travel experience industry in Southeast Asia and Vietnam. I think it has become too industrialized, which is no good for our guests. We can change that by creating experiences based on values that have never been existed before, something a bit less mainstream, more creative and crafted for the needs of modern experience seekers. Giving travellers a good experience is my mission and seeing the pleasing, exciting faces is my happiness.

What we will do

In the Mekong Delta, "Đờn Ca Tài Tử" (translated: southern Vietnam "Amateur" music performance) is an important part of the spiritual activity and cultural heritage. In the past, when people didn’t have many leisure activities to do at night, they gathered at each other’s front yard, and played some random melodies. Those melodies were noted and passed through generations in the south of Vietnam. Because there were no standard for this music, there was no such thing call professional, even good artists in this kind of music are considered “amateur”, hence the name.

Although being amateur, "Đờn Ca Tài Tử" was recognized as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2013. "Đờn Ca Tài Tử" usually played on the traditional guitar (guitar phim lõm), a special guitar in the Southern Vietnam.

For this activity, you can learn how to play this guitar just in two hours, we will teach you a bit melodies about this traditional "amateur" music. If you are able to play this part, you will win a prize of a special traditional guitar.
