Musician takes đàn tranh worldwide
Vietnamese musician Trí Nguyễn learned to play both the western piano and the traditional Vietnamese đàn tranh (zither) at an early age. After graduating from the Music Conservatory of Sài Gòn’s piano department, he continued his studies at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris. But he did not leave đàn tranh behind. He continued learning the Vietnamese instrument from đàn tranh master Hai Biểu, one of the last musicians from the old school of Vietnamese music.
