Yerba Buena Gardens Festival Presents Vân Ánh Võ & The VA’V

SEE EVENT DETAILS
While Vân Ánh Võ & The VA’V is one of Vietnam’s most celebrated traditional artists, she revels in the freedom she’s found in the various musical styles surrounding her in the Bay Area. An award-winning traditional performer and virtuoso on 16-string dan tranh (zither), she’s also an Emmy Award-winning composer who has collaborated with Kronos Quartet. The VA’V is her protean trio featuring string wizard Gari Hegedus and Jimi Nakagawa on taiko drums and percussion. With all three musicians also contributing vocals, VA’V combines ancient sounds to create breathtaking music that feels completely new. Võ is also artistic director of the student ensemble Music Bridge, which opens the concert. With members ranging in age from seven to 14, the group features both Western and traditional Vietnamese instruments.
