Vietnamese Hat Dance

Here’s a beautiful Vietnamese Hat Dance/Nón Lá, from the Cal USA Culture Show 2018.

The reference to Nón Lá (a palm-leaf conical hat) comes from a legend related to the history of rice growing in Vietnam. The story is about a giant woman from the sky who has protected humankind from a deluge of rain. (Do you think it might have been Vertex?)
