The long house in Ko Sia

In the past, Ko Sia was a small hamlet with long houses of the Ede ethnic people. It is one of four ancient hamlets which make up present-day Buon Me Thuot City. When the city was expanded, Ko Sia Hamlet in Tan Lap Ward was urbanised and the cultural features of the Ede people were gradually lost. In this situation, more than 10 years ago, village elder Ma Len gathered the senior people in the hamlet to set up a gong troupe of Ko Sia Hamlet to teach young villagers to play the gongs, a unique cultural identity of the Ede group in Tay Nguyen (the Central Highlands)
