From the organizer:

British Council in Vietnam, Lune Production and Phu Sa Lab present:


The FAMLAB Residency and Concert takes place in close relation to indigenous music from the Vietnamese regions of North West, Central Highlands and South Central (where a large Cham population are based, with the participation of master musicians from the provinces of Tuyen Quang, Lai Chau, Gia Lai, Dak Lak and Binh Thuan.

Working in artistic advisors and co-ordinators roles are artists from Phu Sa Lab (Hanoi): Nguyen Nhat Ly (music director for Lune Production performances such as My Village, A o, Palao, etc.), Nguyen Duc Minh and Quyen Thien Dac, alongside a special guest: composer Ngoc Dai. Other notable names include the Dan Do Group (known for self-made instruments inspired by both indigenous music and quotidian objects), and singer Do Nguyen Mai Khoi.

The initiative also features three contemporary Scottish musicians known for their innovative approaches to sonic traditions: Tom Bancroft (drum set and bodhran drum), Esther Swift (harp) and David Shedden (bagpipes), as such creating a platform for exploring symbiosis and resonances between Vietnam’s and Scotland’s indigenous music forms, in all their parallels.
