Lullaby singing

Thursday, 25 September 2008 02:47 – Nguyen Lan

When I was a baby, my mom and my grand mom used to sing the Vietnamese lullabies for me. It was just not to lull me to sleep but also was the way they connected to my heart. At that time, I could not understand the meaning of the lullabies but I could feel the warmth and sweetness of my mom and my grand mom. And I grew up with these lullabies…  Let me tell you about the lullabies that most Vietnamese did listen when they were little children. Hat ru (or Lullaby singing) is a sort of folk music often heard in Vietnam, especially in the countryside. Ru as a noun is certainly a song to lull babies, and as a verb is to lull, but Vietnamese women use them to consign their fates and also express feelings, such as homesickness or the mood of a wife missing her husband, etc. In order to make the child slowly fall asleep, the song’s rhythm is mostly quiet, the tone is stretched as melodiously as a little dialogue between the mother and the child.
