The music of Vietnam is extremely diversified, with more than 50 different ethnic people and hundreds of styles of music. But as well, Vietnam has musical instruments found nowhere else on Earth, such as the dàn bau, a one-string zither; the Ko Ni, what is translated as the stick fiddle; or the K'longput, a very particular bamboo instrument; and there are many more unusual instruments from people from the highlands of Vietnam. The Khac Chi Ensemble is named after his founder, Ho Khac Chi, a virtuoso of the dàn bau. But he a multi-instrumentalist as well, including being a singer. It is the same with his wife, Hoang Ngoc Bich. The pieces found on this CD come from different people of Vietnam, from Vietnamese themselves (and from different regions), the Xa and Meo of Northern Vietnam, as well as pieces from different styles of music, and more. This magnificent CD gives just a glimpse of the diversity of the traditional styles of music found in Vietnam. You're in for a real discovery. ~ Bruno Deschênes, Rovi
