Local youths and fans of Trinh’s music on Sunday night descended on Nguyen Van Binh book street in the downtown area to join a music concert in commemoration of the late musician Trinh Cong Son on the occasion of his 17th death anniversary.

His everlasting songs including Biet Dau Coi Nguon (Where the origin is), Mot coi di ve (A place for leaving and returning) and Em Con Nho Hay Em Da Quen (You still remember or forget) were sung during the concert by famous singers like Hong Nhung, Lan Nha, Tran Manh Tuan and the music band “Music One”.

Vietnamese artists join hands with millions of music fans across the country to organize music concerts from North to South on the occasion of the death anniversary of the late musician every year to pay homage to the deceased music legend and relive the immortal legacy that Son had left.

Trinh Cong Son wrote over 600 songs during his life, and the American folksinger Joan Baez called him Bob Dylan of Vietnam. He became one of South Vietnam’s best-known singer-songwriters, after his first hit, Uot Mi (Tear filled lashes) written in 1958.

Last year, a scholarship program, named after Trinh Cong Son who passed away in 2001, was set up to continue the legacy of the late musician and nurture the passion and love for the arts among the young Vietnamese from disadvantaged backgrounds.
