HÀ NỘI —Beautiful tunes praising the fatherland and patriotism will be presented during a special music show to welcome the new year on January 6.
The performance Vang Mãi Giai Điệu Tổ Quốc (Rhythm of the Fatherland Resounds Everlastingly) will be organised at the Hà Nội Opera House and broadcast live on VTC1 channel.
It will also air at the websites vtc.com.vn and toquoc.vn allowing Vietnamese overseas to watch.
The online newspaper toquoc.vn will host the show following the success of the first one of its kind organised last year.
Various singers including Thái Bảo, Quang Thọ, Trọng Tấn and Hồ Quỳnh Hương as well as performers from the Việt Nam National Music Song and Dance Theatre, the choir of the Việt Nam Academy of Music and the Ba Đình District Cultural Children’s Centre.
Famous singer Jimmi Nguyễn from the US will return to the country to perform at the show as an effort of the organiser to shorten the distance between Vietnamese people at home and overseas, according to Nguyễn Thanh Liêm, head of the organising board.

“Though Jimmi Nguyễn lives far from the country, he is always directed toward the homeland and has composed many songs expressing nostalgia and patriotism,” said Liêm.
“That’s the reason why we want him to perform at the show as a representative of Vietnamese overseas who has always stuck with the country.”
This is the second time singer Thái Bảo has performed at the show. She said the show gathers famous artists and presents beautiful songs which have won audience’s hearts for years.
“I feel proud to have a chance to perform on the stage of the show,” said Bảo. “I will sing classic songs however, together with musical instrumentalists, I will find new ways to bring new emotions for the audience.”
Bảo said that among numerous music shows organised during a year, the performance “Vang Mãi Giai Điệu Tổ Quốc” is remarkable. It offers audience a wonderful experience of music, singing and dancing.
Jimmi Nguyễn has lived far from the homeland since when he was young but he always remembers and feels proud of his roots.
“The songs I composed express the patriotism and nostalgia of myself and other Vietnamese overseas.” — VNS
