Traditional Vietnamese music is heavily influenced by traditional Chinese music. Classical Vietnamese music was played in shrines and temples to honour the gods and in the royal court to respect the emperor or empress and the country. Modern music in Vietnam has westernised influence and has evolved into new genres like V-pop. Heavy metal and Rock is big in Vietnam since the introduction of Rock and Roll by the American soldiers during the Vietnam war.
Thoughtful and compelling, this track features traditional Vietnamese instruments. Along with a native drum there is a Dan Goong stringed instrument and a Sao Truc, a native flute instrument. The song is moving and a bit mystical.
