Vietnam Summer Festival – The Journey (II)

For the past week, I’ve searched through the internet for all the pictures of the Festival. Most of the photos on this post were not taken by me.

1. Opening Performance: Vietnamese Drums

The sound of the beating drums in traditional Vietnamese culture represents the beginning of the festivities from the small villages to national scale festivals, such as the 1000 years of Hanoi, with the presence of 1000 drums playing in unison.

Performed by Bong Sen Art Troupe and a group of Vietnamese financiers in London
