HA NOI (VNS)— The famous Belgian jazz band Tricycle will perform renowned pieces of music and original works in their unique style for audiences in HCM City and Ha Noi today and tomorrow.
The concerts aim to mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Viet Nam and Belgium.
Playing the contrebas, accordion and flute/sax, the three musicians – Vincent Noiret, Philippe Laloy and Tuur Florizoone – will dazzle with music which has been described by critics as "visual and sensual".
Tuur Florizoone, who also composes the music, describes the sound as a mix of folk, jazz, film (every piece has a story) and even a hint of chacha, world and chamber music.
The concert takes place at 8pm tonight at HCMC Opera House (7, Lam Son Square, District 1); and at 8pm tomorrow at the Ha Noi Opera House (1 Trang Tien Street).
The event is co-organised by the Embassy of Belgium and Viet Nam's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. — VNS
