HÀ NỘI — A contemporary music concert titled ‘Shades of the Sounds’ will take place on September 8 featuring contemporary works by composer Vũ Nhật Tân and the art of tuồng (Vietnamese classical drama).
Organised by the Hà Nội New Music Ensemble and Đông Kinh Cổ Nhạc (the Ancient Music Group of Tonkin), the concert is a journey into the music of the past and present. As a way of expression and cognition, music is a universal language to mankind. Each ethnic group, through its long history of formation and development, has created their own music with distinctive features and characteristics.
With the criterion “to sing as to behold”, tuồng is a captivating art form, its distinct vocal and performance techniques immerse the audience in different emotional states.
The performance will take place at 8pm at Manzi Art Space, 14 Phan Huy Ích Street. — VNS
