HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese artist Lộc Vàng, who has spent most of his life preserving bolero music, has debuted his memoir entitled Cung đàn số phận (The Melody of Fate).
Lộc Vàng, 72, real name Nguyễn Văn Lộc, is best known for his passion and dedication to Vietnamese bolero music.
Lộc Vàng was born to a family of arts tradition, and inherited the love for music from his father’s songs. Despite living in destitution, and taking many jobs to make ends meet, his passion for music kept burning.
The Melody of Fate tells his inner feelings and love for his biggest life passions, bolero music and his wife.
At present, Lộc Vàng has a coffee shop near Hà Nội’s West Lake to keep singing, like as he said, “Until the day I can not sing bolero anymore”. — VNS
