The two candidates include Mo Muong prayer singing in the northwestern province of Hoa Binh and Via Ba Chua Xu festival in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang.

Mo is used by the Muong ethnic people to practice a variety of rituals in daily life.
 
Mo Muong has a long-lasting life because it comprises all folk cultural values of the ethnic Muong people, including fork literature, folk singing, folk rituals telling about people’s knowledge and behavior.

Mo Muong is the essence of experience in labor, production, cultural behavior and philosophy of life, reflecting the love of life, people and hometown. It shows the courage and personality of the Muong ethnic people and land of Muong Hoa Binh. Mo Muong reflects the characteristics, the soul and moral principles of the Muong ethnic minority people.

Meanwhile, the Via Ba Chua Xu spiritual festival honors the holy lady of Mount Sam in An Giang’s Chau Doc city.

The festival annually takes place from the 22nd to the 27th of the fourth lunar month.

The festival also features a range of cultural activities, including musical concerts, a dragon-dance performance and a boat race./.
