The first-ever Vietnamese music and fashion show will be organised at Tempodrom Theatre in Berlin on April 4.
Entitled Tinh Yeu va Ky Uc (Love and Memory), the show will attract 40 performers including a number of leading stars from Viet Nam, such as singers Hong Nhung, Tan Minh and Huong Tram, saxophonist Tran Manh Tuan, models Tra Giang and Duong Ha Giang and 10 European models.
The show will be held in two parts. The first part will have songs by noted composer Phu Quang. A collection of hundreds of ao dai by designer Duc Hung will be introduced at the end of the first part. The second part of the show will feature pop songs for the youth.
The lighting and audio systems for the show will be organised by German companies.
According to Nguyen Xuan Hung, a member of the organising board, the show will then tour Poland, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom and Denmark, besides Switzerland.
"Vietnamese people living in Germany need a number of music shows such as this," Hung said. "I have thought of a way to organise more shows to entertain them, especially the youth, so that they understand, love and return to Vietnamese arts."
