THE MODERN CLASSICS
“Soul Live Project Series: The Modern Classics” is created with the aim to shorten the distance between the mass audience and classical music. At the Soul Live Project series, classical music shall be presented in traditional and new ways, creating unconventional yet relatable ways to pique interest of the audience. With the hope to create new and fresh experience with classical music, the project will introduce to the audience the ‘modern’ and ‘unique’ international, regional and local artists, who are not afraid to test their own boundaries and are willing to step forward from the status quo of the classical scenes with their exceptional artistic vision.
JAZZ THROUGH TIME
Whether featured in movies like La La Land, Chicago, Midnight in Paris or through the storied lives of legends like Miles Davis, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Jazz music represents improvisation, syncopation and rhythm. There are many styles of Jazz to be explored and the Soul Live Project Series is proud to bring you on this journey of discovery. By bringing to Vietnam internationally acclaimed artists such as David Binney, and in 2019 with Cuong Vu, guitarist Bill Frisell and pianist Myra Melford, we aim to present the masterful and innovative sounds of international, regional and local Jazz artists in the intimate setting of the Soul Live Project Complex. The “Soul Live Project Series: Jazz through Time” is under the direction of 2-time Grammy award winner – Mr. Cuong Vu as Artistic Director.
HEAR THE WORLD
Soul Live Project Series: Hear The World aims to present music from different worlds to Vietnamese audience. World music is a borderless genre that highlights the sound of diverse cultures, and the fusion that brings various communities together. With Ms. Vân Ánh Võ as Artistic Director, we aim to introduce many masterful world music artists in and out of Vietnam, in the intimate setting of the Soul Live Project Complex, to pique the interest of Vietnamese audience in such a distinct and colorful genre.
ROCK & POP
Rock & Pop are recognised as the most prominent and diverse genres of music, that produced the most hits and gave birth to numerous legendary names like The Beatles, Celine Dion, Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Queen, Whitney Houston… “Soul Live Project Series: Rock & Pop” is created with the hope to bring to Vietnam world-renowned local, regional and international Pop & Rock artists. The series will create exciting and dynamic musical experience in the intimate setting of the Soul Live Project Complex, a new hub for music/arts lovers in Saigon! By presenting unique, established and world-famous artists with outstanding artistic vision, we hope to contribute to the arts/entertainment scene of Vietnam a breath of fresh air!
