HA NOI  (VNS) —The first encounter in Manzi's traditional music series Old Sounds of the New Day will start next Friday, July 17, with a xam performance featuring two masters of traditional music, Xuan Hoach and Thanh Hoai, and other talented musicians.

Originally born on the street and performed by wandering artists, xam is a form of folk music deeply rooted in the people, especially the inferior and outcast. With simple lyrics and brutally honest attitude, the narratives in xam songs often describe life's hardships, satirically comment on social degradation and discuss hotly debated political issues.

Surcharge at door: VND150,000 (including one free drink).

Due to limited seating capacity (30 people), please email manzihanoi@gmail.com before Wednesday, July 14, to reserve seats.

Old Sounds of the New Day is a series of traditional music concerts hosted by Manzi in an effort to support these traditional values, and to tell a real story about traditional music in Viet Nam.

Manzi Art Space is at 14 Phan Huy Ich Street. — VNS
