After its much sought success at the Opera House, Ho Chi Minh City last January 29, 2016, Mr. Nguyễn, Hùng Nguyễn, Chairman of OSSSO Company Limited and the man behind the successful OSSSO Fusion Musical Experience decided to stage this show for music and culture lovers abroad kicking off first in Russia through a Vietnam Cultural Exchange Festival.
“It is about time that the world would see and hear what and how Vietnam music has evolved and can evolve into. Vietnam, having 54 ethnic minorities preserves a century deep and timeless culture, customs, rituals and music. This traditional folk music is a priceless treasure and an endless inspiration for generations. We want to showcase an innovation and blend of traditional music transformed into a unique, bright, impressive symphonic music blending modern, pop music”, Mr. Hùng Nguyễn said.

The team travelled from North to South of Vietnam to collect original traditional music rhythms, documented and studied countless records of traditional music and instruments.
Mr. Tran Manh Hung, composer, said, “It has been very challenging blending Western music with Eastern musical colors but this is a phenomenal breakthrough for Vietnamese to move to a new era of art and culture development, in which traditional music becomes a fertile field for musicians to exploit and develop in diverse ways.”
