Experimental music concert

In order to follow all measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic, the concert will be broadcast live via Fanpage Goethe-Institut Hanoi.

There are always women who transcend limits to freely express themselves and their creativities. They learn about different cultures and enrich their own experiences to make their life more interesting. "Drifting Intervals" is a music project that includes five female composers/performers. From the idea of artist Lương Huệ Trinh, material in each commissioned composition is the personal outlook of one composer on cultural exchange Vietnam-Germany. Not only that, delicacy and sensitivity of these artists will also be shown in the improvisation section. The concert is performed from Vietnam, Germany, France and Ghana.
