The Japanese center for international culture exchange, Japan Foundation, will bring a traditional drum concert to Hanoi April 9 and later to the Hue Festival.
Bati-Holic, formed in 2004 by six schoolmates in Kyoto, the city of culture and tradition, will perform with Shinobue, a Japanese transverse flute that has a high-pitched sound, Japanese traditional drums called Wadaiko, and vocals.
It will be the group’s second visit to Vietnam after their performance at Japanese festival Genki held in Ho Chi Minh City in 2012.
Bati-Holic, known for infusing a contemporary spirit to traditional instruments, gives out more than 100 performances a year at schools, festivals and concert halls across Japan while learning new traditional dances and songs. They have also performed in South Korea, Taiwan and the Netherlands.
The Hanoi performance will be held at the Tuoi Tre (Youth) Theater, 11 Ngo Thi Nham Street, Hai Ba Trung District at 8 p.m. Free tickets are available at the Japan Foundation at 27 Quang Trung Street, Hoan Kiem District from 2 p.m. March 28.
Later, the band will perform at the opening of the biennial Hue Festival in Vietnam’s former capital Hue on April 12-13.
