HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese singer Tung Duong will present all his hits at a live concert in Ha Noi this weekend.
Entitled Thap Ky Hoan Ca (A Decade of Joyful Singing), the concert is his sixth liveshow in a career that launched after winning the singing contest Morning Star - Rendezvous in 2004.
"The concert is not only to celebrate my profession's maturity, but also is to fulfill my promise to my audiences of presenting new music or producing a show every year," Duong said.
"I'm still loyal with my musical personality – a bit weird, a bit unusual, a bit challenging –despite many people saying I'm a weirdo," he added.
During A Decade of Joyful Singing, Duong will sing 10 hit songs including Chiec Khan Pieu (The Pieu Ethnic Scarf) by veteran composer Doan Nho, Que Nha (Birthplace) and Mua Bay Thap Co (Rain Flying over Ancient Tower) by Tran Tien, Oi Que Toi (My Homeland) by Le Minh Son, and Con Co (The Stork) by Luu Ha An.
The performance will also feature songs from his award-winning albums Chay Tron (Run Away), Nhung O Mau Lap Phuong (The Coloured Cubes), Li Ti (Tiny) and Doc Dao (Only Path).
The repertoire will also include songs from his newly released album Bong Toi Jazz (Jazz's Darkness), which features all new pieces by female songwriter Giang Son.
The singer will perform part of his next album, Re Cay (Tree Root), featuring production from composer Sa Huynh.
Huynh's song Li Ti (Tiny) was chosen as the theme song for the album of the same name, which won Duong the Album of the Year award in 2011. Her new song, Con Tam (The Silk Worm), that Duong performed recently on the stage of Viet Nam Idol 2015, has created a "storm" in the country's music scene as it became a hit.
The concert A Decade of Joyful Singing will feature two special guests – singer Thanh Lam and singer/songwriter Le Cat Trong Ly, who will perform a duet with Duong.
"I have always wanted to sing with Lam and Ly. We are a perfect match on the stage," Duong said.
The singer also said despite each artist having their own distinguished music style, the most important thing is that "we understand each other very well and know how to support each other when we perform". — VNS
