Project Title: 
Hanoi, Vietnam -- Researching traditional and contemporary musical traditions
Project Abstract: 
This summer I plan to return to Hanoi to expand my research on the growing contemporary music scene in Vietnam's northern capital city. In many ways, this trip will be an extension of my previous visit in July of 2015, made possible by the generosity of the Mario Einaudi Center. During my time in Vietnam, I had many fortunate opportunities to meet with musicians, composers, and scholars who were eager to discuss their musical traditions. I hope to further cultivate these relationships, as many of these individuals have extended very generous offers for musical training and assistance with scholarly research, as well as facilitating introductions to Vietnamese master-artists who are not affiliated with any institution.
