Hat-bôi Vietnamese Theatre (Southern Tradition).

PLAY ALL. Viet Nam: Court Theatre Music: Hat-Bôi. Released by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, Auvidis-UNESCO Dec 2014 5 Tracks.

The traditional court theater of Vietnam is called hat bôi (hat: theater; bôi: masked or painted face). Although hat bôi bears a superficial resemblance to Chinese theater, the instrumentals and vocals are distinctly Vietnamese. This musical theater genre began in the early 14th century, reaching a peak in popularity in the 19th century. In the mid-20th century it all but vanished due to the rise of modern theatrical styles; however, the reunification of Vietnam in 1975 has resulted in further study and interest in the preservation of the tradition by educators and musicians.

The traditional Vietnamese Court Theatre called hat Iuong or hat boi was codified towards the beginning of the fourteenth century and, since the nineteenth century, has become a popular theatre, especially in the South.
