Quoc Trung’s Road to Infinity
In Duong Xua Van Dam, Quoc Trung gives Vietnamese traditional music (cheo, quan ho and hat xam) an unorthodox makeover. His masterful arrangements not only revived the aesthetic experience, but also retained the original flavor. By cascading eastern instruments into world-music rhythm, he has crafted some of the most exotic and imaginative sounds. For instance, the keyboard and the sixteen-stringed zither play side by side on “Dong Song Mot Bo” creating a sensational east-joins-west harmony. Duong Xa Van Dam is rich, colorful and exquisite. Even though you can download high-quality MP3, I encourage you to get the original album when it is available. Quoc Trung deserves the support for his inventive work.
