The Hanoi Social Club will host what it calls an "electrifying" concert by the "Michelle & Musbaba" duo on June 16.


The "intimate settings" will give local fans a taste of what to expect in the duo's soon-to-be released in-studio EP, a press release from the club said.


The concert will be recorded live (audio and video), it added.


It will feature American Roots Music (folk, blues and soul), accompanied by traditional Malian percussion, creating "strong melodic waves, pulsing rhythms, and powerful vocals."


Michelle Stewart is an American who has lived in Hanoi for the last two years. Apart from singing, she also plays the guitar, the mandolin and other acoustic instruments.


Musbaba of Mali, who has been in the country for just three weeks, is a percussionist who plays the djembe, calabasse, African rhythms and traditional Malian instruments.


Tickets priced at VND65,000 can be got at the door, 6 Hoi Vu Street, Hanoi. The concert begins open at 8 p.m. but customers are advised to arrive early due to limited seating.
