HOI AN (VNS)— A live musical show by two inspirational musicians, Pham Nhu Khoa, a one-armed guitarist, and French-Vietnamese drummer, Nguyen The Vinh will be held at Hoi An's U-cafe on Saturday.

The guitarist Khoa, from Binh Duong, an orphan since childhood, will perform songs composed by Trinh Cong Son, while Vinh will play natural sounds on his self-made bronze drum from 2pm to 5pm at the Hoai River side cafe at Alley No 39/41 in Tran Quang Khai Street.

Vinh, who suffers from Parkinson disease due to exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin during the war, left HCM city for France with his mother when he was just 10. He returned to Hoi An in 2012.

The French-Vietnamese has created a "sky-drum" from bronze parts of American war bombs as a memoir of his childhood experiences during the war.

The two are also scheduled to perform at the Hope Village, which is home to disabled and orphaned children, in Da Nang city, on Sunday afternoon, before a night performance at Sakura Friends, a venue for Viet Nam-Japan cultural exchange in the city. — VNS
