Ca tru is in danger of extinction along with an ageing generation of elder artisans, who own most ca tru treasures. I hope younger generations will find the beauty of this folk music genre through our performance," said Hue, 40. Ca tru first appeared in the 11th century and was performed at royal receptions and religious rituals. It was later performed more widely in singing parlours. The style combines poetry and music and uses a variety of traditional melodic forms. "We want to replicate this ca tru performance form because it was popular among our ancestors. The house performances of ca tru are not controled by rules; that's why performers and audiences can connect. Both of my teachers used to sing at these houses," Hue said. During the performance on Thursday night, the trio performed seven ca tru songs and extracts, include Tieng Duong Tranh, which is considered the oldest song of the genre. Hue has spent 14 years studying at the Ha Noi Conservatory of Music's Traditional Music Department and now lecturers there. She is not only a ca tru singer but is also the first-ever female instrumentalist to play the dan day – one of three necessary instruments to perform ca tru (the others are a small drum and phach, a percussion instrument made of bamboo and played with two wooden sticks). "Experiences I had at the Conservatory of Music helped bring me closer to ca tru in the past year. Now I feel very confident because I always have my teachers beside me in performances," she said.The band's performances are organised on Wednesday , Friday and Sunday at 20.00 pm .
