German duo AB Syndrom, Vietnamese artist to perform in Hanoi

German AB Syndrom band and Vietnamese artist Linh Ha will perform in Hanoi’s Tuoi Tre Theatre in Hanoi on October 20, according to the Goethe Institute.

AB Syndrom is the ninth German band invited by the institute to perform in Southeast Asia. Linh Ha, who has worked with the band in a music project in Germany, will accompany the duo during their tour of Vietnam.

The Berlin duo AB Syndrom and the unusual beats of their music have been rocking the German music scene since 2007. They are popular in Spotify and German radio (radioeins, Fritz, Deutschlandfunk, Nova). Their second album Hey Herz made the Radio Fritz “Sound of 2017” list.

Vietnamese artist Linh Ha is an equally accomplished musician who uses her unique voice, a variety of percussion instruments, and a looper to create multidimensional soundscapes. Combining traditional Vietnamese vocal techniques, her personal lyrics, and a variety of other influences from pop to techno, Linh Ha concocts opulent, sonorous harmonies, sampled hissing noises, and peaceful lullabies into refined, impressive songs.

Along with Hanoi, the concert will be held in Da Nang, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City on October 27, 28 and 30, respectively.
