DIEP VI AN trở thành dân xứ Canada (gốc Việt), là nhạc sĩ đàn tranh Việt Nam, Trung quốc và Nhật Bản .

Vietnamese - Canadian, independent & full-time, professional, contemporary World music recording Artist and composer who improvises intuitively every original piece of music - specializing in Asian long zithers, mainly on the Chinese 'zheng' (箏) 21 and 28 stringed long zithers.

Self-taught, real time composer + intuitive improviser on various Asian long zither instruments including Japanese koto and Vietnamese dan tranh.  Other instruments include synthesizers and various hand percussion instruments.

Subscribe if you support authentic creative expressions, collaboration, community, preservation, activism and sincere innovation.  I yearn to contribute to the vast world of Asian long zither music out there but remain steadfast to never 'sell out' by appeasing to the masses.  

I have nothing to gain and nothing to lose, though I have every reason to share and grow as an original artist!

Only One Finale (for 36 stringed zheng long zither) by Vi An Diep.

Ajoutée le 3 oct. 2013

So far the only 36 stringed zheng, Taiwanese made long zither in the world. Great innovation it was about time this was invented(?), innovated at least, because this is my first time improvising on one this grand of a size! Grateful to the luthier and to Sonia Liu of Vancouver’s « Crystal Gu-zheng Centre » for allowing me this great honour to share.
