Ho! #1 Roady Music From Vietnam [coll] – [Trikont]

humana   6/20/2010   CD, International

The liner notes for this are a must-read, as they describe the traditional Vietnamese instrument of the dan bau and the handicapped street musicians (who suffered from Agent Orange side effects) performing the music on this CD. There are covers a-plenty (1, 13, 21) and raucous funeral marches. It???s like they bring out the horns and celebrate New Orleans-style when it comes to death. The traffic sounds create an interesting ambience and nothing on here isn???t worth listening to. Get a taste of the sub-culture of Vietnam.
