HCM CITY (VNS) — Fans have shown great interest in new albums featuring folk and revolutionary music celebrating the country's Reunification Day.

Featured albums include Nhung Buc Tranh Que Huong (Pictures of Viet Nam) and Que Nha (Homeland), both released this week by music studio Viet Tan of HCM City.

Nhung Buc Tranh Que Huong includes 15 contemporary folk songs with music by Quynh Hop and lyrics by famous poets like Nguyen Trong Luan and Quynh Le.

The CD highlights the voice of Bana singer Y Jang Tuyn, who began his career in 1993 and earned several top prizes at national singing contests.

In Nhung Buc Tranh Que Huong, he faced challenges by turning from rock to sing folk music to offer his fans something new.

The work Que Nha features revolutionary songs performed by young singers to praise soldiers who fought and died in Quang Ngai Province under the American war.

Today, the pop band Artista released Chao Sai Gon Ban Mai (Good Morning Sai Gon), a CD consisting of eight songs about the youth of HCM City.

Singer Trang Nhung and her younger colleagues, Tieu Chau Nhu Quynh and Duong Quoc Hung, will present their latest albums called Nghieng Ve Phia Bien (Reaching to the Sea) and Di Ngang Qua Song (Walking on the Waves) next week. Both works includes songs in pop and dance on the life of navy soldiers. — VNS
