HCM CITY — A special TV music show featuring 70 singers, rappers, dancers, musicians and theatre artists will air on HCM City Television (HTV) to celebrate Tết (Lunar New Year), which begins on February 12.

Rappers Wowy and Yuno Bigboi will perform top hits that helped shoot them to fame at Rap Việt, the first TV competition seeking talented rappers in Việt Nam aired last year. Rap Việt was adapted from The Rapper of Thailand, a show widely known in Asia. 

“We worked to provide audiences with a show with high quality in both music and visual content. I hope my music in Gala Nhạc Việt- Năm Mới Bình An sends best wishes to Vietnamese at home and abroad during Tết,” said rapper Wowy of HCM City, who spent hours working in HTV’s studio to prepare for his performance. 

Wowy, whose real name is Nguyễn Ngọc Minh Huy, began his career in 2006.  He is considered a rap pioneer in the south and has been particularly successful in combining rap with Vietnamese social and cultural issues.

His hits include Hai Thế Giới (Two Worlds), Khu Tao Sống (Where I Live), Buddha and Lão Đại (The Senior). 

Featured performances will include contemporary dances staged by artists from the HCM City College of Dance and HCM City Youth Cultural House. The dancers will perform in áo dài (Vietnamese dress) designed by leading Vietnamese fashion houses.  

The show will air at 9am on the HTV9 channel on the first day of the Lunar New Year, February 12. — VNS
