HA NOI (VNS) — Anne Marte Trio from Norway will perform for the first time in Viet Nam.
While jazz is often performed on piano and saxophone, band members Anne Marte Eggen, Nils Andersson and Niklas Cvetkovski play electric bass and guitar. The concert will also feature 18-year-old Vietnamese drummer Le Minh Hieu.
Eggen has always been passionate about music and found herself particularly drawn to the electric bass. In 2008, her interest in music brought her to Sweden where she studied jazz for two years. Later she received a bachelor's degree in jazz electric bass at Malmo Academy of Music. She is active as both a bass player and composer in several bands in Norway and Sweden such as pop-jazz group We Float, folk-jazz band Ljom and experimental jazz quartet Kvalia. She has performed at many jazz festivals in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the US.
The concert begins at 8.30pm on Sunday at Don's, 16 Quang An Street, Tay Ho District. — VNS
