From Goethe Institut:
After the successful concerts in 2008 and 2010, the Goethe-Institut Vietnam presents for the third time the percussion music festival CRACKING BAMBOO. On the foundation of percussion instruments and rhythm CRACKING BAMBOO combines Asian and Western music, which produces an exceptional and unique sound. The festival also supports the cultural exchange of western and eastern nations and besides the music it is an initiative to support innovative methods and practice in the field of music and performance art.
This year, around 31 participants from Asia and Europe, including Germany, Norway, France, England, Mongolia, Canada, Belgium, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, will come together for workshops inBangkok. From Vietnam three percussionists from the music academy Ho Chi Minh City will take part, just like three musicians from Hanoi who are going to play Vietnamese string instruments like the „Dan Bau“ and the traditional bamboo xylophone „Dan T`Rung“. All musicians spend 5 days in mixed and roughly equal-sized ensemble groups to create a program in which individual solo contributions, improvisation and short composed segments should result in a “composed” or arranged program inBangkok,Hanoiand Ho Chi Minh.
On October 6th at the courtyard of the Goethe Institute Hanoi will host the introduce concert during which the various artists will present themselves musically.
The resulting program will be performed in the concert on October 7th in the Youth Theatre inHanoi and on October 10th in Conservatory in HCMC. In this final concert the artists will present a music, which doesn’t have a special name: it is not only new music or traditional music, not World music or cross-over music: it is a music, all artists are creating on the same eyelevel in respect for the music culture of others. It is a wonderful adventure of listening for the musicians and the audience, too.
With CRACKING BAMBOO 2012, we promise again a very colorful, surprising and creative project.
