No doubts, the best way to learn about another country or culture is to visit those places and connect with locals. Another good way to do that is through reading books and good literature. Only then visual aspects such as photography and video content comes in play. But I guess a visual part is just a top of the […]

Country of Inspiration – Vietnam. When old sounds hit the new wave of existence.

Страна вдохновения. Вьетнам. Когда старые звуки обретают новое звучание.


This week we review two incredible artists who are coming from Vietnam but found their better place for living in the USA. Both of them have their own vision on sounds of music, they stick to different music genres to tell their stories. Van Anh Vanessa Vo stays true to the traditional Vietnamese musical instruments but let the freedom of expression rules the creation process. While Mondega is putting up a rapper cap on that suits him well, wears a hip-hop style with passion rhyming about his difficult and challenging life as an Asian-American.

Этот обзор прольет свет на жизнь настоящих беззащитных беженцев Вьетнама, которые обрели творческую и социальную свободу на землях Америки. Представляем музыку и мысли композитора экспериментатора Ван Ан Ванесса Во, которая виртуозно владеет навыками игры на национальных музыкальных инструментах. А также узнайте о мыслях, мотивах и творчестве рэппера Мондеги, Вьетнамского прототипа Эминема, который лично для меня стал музыкальным воплощением птицы Феникс.
