Abstract or Description

The author compares Lên đồng ritual of Viet people and Then ritual of Tày people in Vietnam and focuses his discussion on three main issues: first is the relations between music and trance and the role of music during those rituals; second is how ritual music in both rituals is involved in the representations of ethnic identity; and third is the matter of theatricalisation and heritagization of ritual practices, and how the meanings of musical performance are affected by the promotion of religious rituals as intangible cultural heritage.
