  • Vietnam International Finger-Style Guitar Festival 2016

    Vietnam International Finger-Style Guitar Festival 2016

    Fingerstyle is a new genre of solo guitar music in Vietnam that has been thriving over recent years. One simple way of describing the genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he or she is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective for the acoustic guitar. An annual event has been held since 2010 in Asia and this year is being organised with 16 concerts in seven countries, starting in Japan and finishing in Singapore. In Vietnam the festival is being held in Hanoi with the participation of Andy McKee (from the US), Huang Chia Wei (Taiwan), Masa Sumide (Japan), Tung AG (Vietnam) and Erica Eunji Cho & Sandra Bae (South Korea).

    Tickets are from VND600,000 to VND1,200,000 and available at www.ticketbox.vn .

    ‘Royal Treasures – Golden Books of the Nguyen Dynasty’

    Twenty-two books made from gold created under the Nguyen Dynasty, the last in Vietnam (1802-1945), are being showcased to the public for the first time after decades of preservation. Since 1945, when Emperor Bao Dai abdicated, the museum has collected more than 3,000 precious items of the dynasty. On display are also ten related objects and two book boxes, all made from precious metals and subtly engraved. The objects are valuable not only because of their gold and also because they are unique art works carved by the best Vietnamese craftsmen of the time. They are also ideologically significant for honouring the filial piety advocated by the dynasty. Tickets: VND40,000.

    ‘Truc Chi - Listen to the River’

    The exhibition presenting bamboo paper artworks created by artist Phan Hai Bang is on display. The production of paper made from bamboo has a long tradition in some Asian countries but the process is usually completed with the moulding of the paper. But this is just the beginning for Truc Chi - a new form of art. The artists in the group interact with the wet structure of the paper in the frame and use water pressure and other techniques to change the surface. In this way unique images are created, which some artists further process through brush or collage techniques. Bang is the first artist in Vietnam to develop new techniques for the treatment of the materials. People who want to learn more and try out the paper processing techniques can join workshops on 2 and 14 July.
