Guitarists to perform in friendship celebration

HA NOI -- Spanish and Vietnamese guitarists will share the stage for a concert at the Ha Noi Opera House on Wednesday.

The concert will include many energetic and fun Spanish pieces played by Lopez Vicente and Alfredo Lagos.

Lagos has a contemporary perspective based on classic Jerez-style flamenco, and has collaborated with guitar greats throughout the world.

Vicente's technique combines thumb and base for a unique, harmonious sound, and he has won prizes from the Hospitalet, Calasparra (Murcia), and the Federacion de Penas Flamencas de Sevilla.

They will play solo and alongside Vietnamese musicians to charm the audience this week.

The concert will be held in celebration of the 35-year relationship between Viet Nam and Spain. For ticket information please contact the Spanish Embassy. -- VNS
