HA NOI — The Da Nang-born songwriter and songstress Le Cat Trong Ly will introduce her latest songs during two special music nights at L’Espace on March 3 & 4.  

Written in Denmark and Sweden in the summer of 2017, these songs can be considered a breakthrough in the songwriting process for Ly, with stronger traditional and classical elements than her previous songs.

These songs will be recorded in France by music producer Nguyen Thanh Tu with the collaboration of pianist Cao Thanh Lan, clarinetist Nguyen Minh Hoang and a string quartet.

At the concerts at L’Espace, the songstress will be accompanied by Nguyen Minh Hoang on clarinet, Cao Thanh Lan on piano, Nguyen Cong Thang and Le Tuan Anh on violin, Ho Viet Khoa on alto viola, and Nguyen Thanh Tu on cello.

Tickets cost VND500,000, 400,000, and 300,000 for L’Espace members and students. Tickets are available at L’Espace. The concerts will start at 8pm.

A native of Da Nang, Ly was a student of Da Nang University until 2006, when she decided to give up her studies to go to HCM City and enroll in the violin department of the city’s Conservatory of Music, where she started to compose songs. In 2008, she won several prizes at the Bai Hat Viet (Vietnamese Song) programme organised by Vietnam Television, including ‘Song of the Month’ and ‘Song of the Year’ for her song Chenh Venh, and the Promising Young Singer.

In 2009, Ly was invited by French singer Francis Cabrel to join him during his concert in Ha Noi. One year later, the then young singer was invited to perform three sold-out nights at L’Espace. She released her debut album Le Cat Trong Ly in January 2011. — VNS
