Lo River originates from Yunnan (China) flowing through the Vietnam’s far north mountains down to the midlands and joins into the Red River in Viet Tri. During the French War (1945 – 1954), the mountains and jungles across the basin of Lo River provided a shelter for Viet Minh’s war-zone. In 1947 Viet Minh’s artillery sank two French ships on Lo River. The triumphal battle and river itself were both exalted and immortalized in poetry and songs and. Most famous song is “Epic of Lo River” by Van Cao, which was highly regarded as the first symphony work in Vietnam’s modern music history. Another song written by Van Cao is now Vietnam’s national anthem.
