British string quartet BOND, often dubbed “the Spice Girls of classical music,” will come to Vietnam again for a show on March 25 in Hanoi.
Tania Davis (violin), Eos Counsell (violin), Elspeth Hanson (viola) and Gay-Yee Westerhoff (cello) are expected to perform their hits such as "Shine," "Jai Ho" and "Viva" at the National Convention Center.
BOND, launched in 2000 by music producer Mike Batt, specializes in classical crossover and synthpop music. It is the biggest-selling string quartet of all time with more than 4 million albums sold.
The event in Hanoi will also feature local famous singers including Thanh Lam, My Linh, Pham Thu Ha and Phuc Tiep.
BOND performed in Vietnam for the first time at the Monsoon Music Festival in Hanoi last October.
