AllMusic Review by

This CD gives a taste of Vietnamese music. Vietnam has over 60 different minorities besides the Vietnamese population, which holds the majority, with three distinct regions, North, Central and South Vietnam, each with its own particular music and character. This CD offers 12 popular songs from these three regions. We hear some traditional songs alongside more recent or traditional ones arranged in a modern way, accompanied by a typical Vietnamese ensemble. A taste of Vietnamese music: somewhat modern while maintaining and nurturing its roots.
