Eclectic Australian band to perform in northern Vietnam

The Australian band, Visions of A Nomad, will be performing in Hanoi on February 23 and 24.

The concerts are part of Australian Culture and Education Week (February 17-25), a series of events organized by the Australian Embassy in Hanoi.

Vision of A Nomad "likes to make music with 'substance,' a cohesion of art and music accessible to the masses, covering all genres and drawing on all the world's musical influences," according to the band's website. 

In 1990, Michael Cuming founded the group, seeking to fuse old and new traditions to form a new genre. The group's highly original repertoire, accompanied by the didgeridoo, is energetic and evocative.

During the trip to Hanoi, Vision of A Nomad will perform at the University of Foreign Trade and the University of Commerce on February 23 and 24 respectively. Admission is free.
