Đàn bầu

HDP  133

While we're talking about traditional folklore, did you know that one of the most popular musical instruments is the monochord - or, in Vietnamese, 'đàn bầu'? Although very simple in its design, the sounds it can produce covers an astonishing range. You can listen to it - and even learn how to play it! - over there.
