NDO - A music night featuring jazz manouche, also known as Gypsy jazz, will be held on March 11, at 8pm, at L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street, Hanoi.
The night will feature the Thinh Fla Quartet, consisting of Doan Viet Dung and Luong Xuan Thinh on guitar, Hoang Hai Bang on bass guitar, and Ha Dinh Huy on drums.
The quartet’s repertoire will include some music pieces as well as some pre-war Vietnamese romantic songs played in this style.
Audience members will have the chance to enjoy an exceptional evening during which the improvisation of jazz tunes will be mixed with the reinterpretation of Vietnamese lyrical songs performed by the best Vietnamese guitarists in the country.
Jazz manouche is rooted in the 1930s-40s recordings of guitarist Django Reinhardt and typically features guitar-centric swing tunes.
