Meeting with Jason Gibbs, the author of “Rock Hanoi and Rumba Cuu Long”
As stated in the sub-title “The music story of Vietnam”, Jason Gibbs’s book is a narrative about Vietnamese history and culture exposed through stories of music.
The book expresses not only a passion and sound knowledge of Vietnamese culture, language and music of its author but also his hard work to collect a wide range of information about music phenomena in the history of Vietnam.
In the occasion of his arrival in Hanoi, Knowledge Publishing House in cooperation with Goethe Institute is organizing a meeting with Jason Gibbs to discuss about the book and his research on Vietnamese music. The music stories will be revealed by Jason Gibbs and other guests such as translator Nguyen Truong Quy and rocker Tien Dat.
