Participants heard reports on distinct features and values of musical genres by cultural researchers, music teachers, and musicians from Thua Thien-Hue province in the central region and the Central Highlands provinces of Gia Lai, Lam Dong, and Dak Lak.

Researcher Vinh Phuc from the Hue Academy of Music talked in details how to pass down the Central Highlands region’s Gong music to next generations. Others analysed the preservation on the perspective of policies targeting ethnic musicians or introduced the building of a new music environment as a potential solution.
