Description:

The Royal Refined Music was first introduced in the 13th century, but only reached its peak under the Nguyen Dynasty.

The Royal Refined Music had long enjoyed a preference as an official form of royal music. It was recognized as the symbol of a powerful and long-lasting monarchy and as an indispensable part of all ceremonies.

Each year, the Royal Refined Music was played in nearly 100 different ceremonies.

Compared to other forms of art, the Royal Refined Music boasted high artistic value, first and foremost because the court had enough political power and finance to bring together talented composers and players from around the country.
