Throughout the song, the ambassador raps several Vietnamese lines to wish people a peaceful new lunar year.
He also lists what should be done throughout Tet in Vietnamese traditions, including preparing the yellow mai and peach plants, of which flowers are signature for home decoration during Tet in Vietnam, cleaning up the house to welcome guests, and giving li xi (lucky money) to children.
He ends the video with the line saying "Tet den roi" which means Tet has arrived.
This is the Ambassador’s fourth Tet in Vietnam, and he has always enjoyed this time of year. "Tet gives us an opportunity to slow down, reconnect with loved ones, and reflect on the passing year while looking ahead to the coming year," said the U.S. Consulate General in HCMC.
"Our two countries cooperate closely on everything from security, trade, and education, to war legacies, energy, and health, and now we can add music to the list," it added.
Tet is what Vietnamese calls Lunar New Year, which is so far the nation's biggest holiday and most important occasion for family reunion.
