ABOUT SAIGON SUPERSOUND:
What started as an idea 6 years ago now became reality with the release of SAIGON SUPERSOUND Vol. 1 in 2017. The first Compilation about the story of a musical era in Vietnam that was almost lost. A selection of tracks from the period between 1965 and 1975, the so-called “Golden Music” period in the south of Vietnam, where – under difficult circumstances – a lively pop culture had developed. This period is characterized by the fusion of Vietnamese music with western pop music. Now in 2018 this story continues with the release of Saigon Supersound Vol. 2. …and there is still more to be discovered yet. Saigon Supersound received a great media feedback around the world with articles and features in MOJO (UK), SONGLINES (UK), LA LIBERATION (FR), Selction Octobre on Radio FIP (FR), VIETCETERA (VN), SAIGONEER (VN), FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE ZEITZUNG – FAZ (GER), SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG (GER), JAZZTHING (GER), TAZ (GER), Nominated for “GERMAN RECORD CRITICS’ AWARD 2018”, “ALBUM OF THE DAY” on Bandcamp…and many more!
