French rapper and jazz artist Kad Achouri will perform at the L'Espace in Hanoi on November 15.

Achouri, of Algerian-Spanish ancestry, was nominated "Young Talent of Midem International Music Fair" at Cannes in 2002.

In Hanoi, he will present songs arranged with piano, contrebass, guitar, percussion, bandoneon and string instruments.

A review of his debut album Liberté by BBC's Neil Bennun in 2002 said his music "occupies a previously unexplored hinterland located somewhere between French chanson, jazz and MC Solaar."

Kad has so far released three albums, the latest of which is called "Dear Marianne."

Tickets, priced at VND50,000-100,000, go on sale at L'Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street, from October 15.
