Melodies and Movement from Vietnam
Melodies and Movement from Vietnam Music in Vietnam has a complex and varied tradition, buffeted by both war and modernity. Dr. Phong Nguyen, a 1997 National Heritage Fellow and one of the world's leading guardians of this traditional music, and members of his ensemble perform a wide range of the gentle yet jazzy traditional and folk musics and dance from Northern, Central, Highlands, and Southern regions, each with its distinctive melodies and rhythms.
