VIETNAM'S AO DAI HIGHLIGHTS IN AMERICAN
Vietnamese girls in Ao Dai (traditional long dress) have paraded through the streets of California during the second Ao Dai Festival being held at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts.
According to Jenny Do, the festival’s producer and creative director, the day-long Ao Dai Festival aimed to bring awareness to the culture, people and spirit of Vietnam through the works of Vietnamese artists and fashion designers.
Local Vietnamese performing troupe Buu Kim Tu Dragon and Lion Dance Group started the festival with lively and colorful lion dancing accompanied with the pounding of taiko drums and plucking of the traditional Vietnamese zither by the AuCo Vietnamese Cultural Center, Oh-In Taiko Drum School, Tranhsemble and La Vang Drum Association.
After the opening ceremony, the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts hosts various painting exhibitions. An auction of Vietnamese tourism products is also taking place as part of the event.
The Ao Dai Festival ended with a finale performance of “Vietnam, Vietnam,” written by Pham Duy and performed by the event’s volunteer chorus.
