Hanoi for Haiti is a night of music, performances, prizes and mingling – all for a good cause. It is being organized by a small group of concerned global citizens living in Hanoi who were moved by the traumatic personal stories of those suffering in Haiti after the earthquake, and needed to reach out and help. By bringing people together in a fun atmosphere, we know that our small efforts will be multiplied so we can really make an impact for those in need – especially as the rebuild and restructure their lives in the days to come.

Program & Artists

• 9 pm: Vocalist from Hanoi’s leading Filipino band: Annaliza Samonte.

• Headlining Band at 9.30 pm: The Props. A Hanoi-based global band that’s a little alternative country; a little indy rock with some extended jams mixed in. Featuring: Tom- UK- Guitar; Ed – Canada – Bass; Drew – New Zealand – Guitar; Ian – Scotland – Drums; and Brady – USA – Harmonica.
