IS NOW LIVE
EVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SATURDAY
AT THE CHOPSTICKS
Don Ca Tai Tu, a musical art with both scholarly and folk roots, is an indispensable part of the spiritual activity and cultural heritage of the people of southern Viet Nam. The music and songs evoke the people’s life and work on the land and rivers of the Mekong Delta region.
Performed at numerous events such as festivals, death anniversary rituals and celebrations, Don Ca Tai Tu is thus intimately connected with other cultural practices and customs, oral traditions and handicrafts. The performers express their feelings by improvising, ornamenting and varying the ‘skeletal melody’ and main rhythmic patterns of these pieces.
With the aim of bringing this musical art closer to guests and matching The Chopsticks Saigon’s vintage concept, Don Ca Tai Tu is now performed live at The Chopsticks 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) with the moon-shaped lute, a guitar and a singer.
Chopsticks Saigon Restaurant specializes in authentic-but-casual Vietnamese cuisine, as illustrated by a menu long on fresh soups, salads, and spring rolls. It’s located in District 3, on the same plot of land where former Saigon mayor and South Vietnamese Prime Minister Tran Van Huong once lived.
