A concert featuring women artists from Vietnam, France, Germany, and Ghana will be hosted online by the Goethe Institute in Hanoi on July 17.

The experimental music performance, titled ‘Drifting Intervals,’ will feature women who transcend limits to freely express themselves and their creativeness.

The two Vietnamese artists who will appear are a multimedia composer and electronics improviser Luong Hue Trinh and well-known dan bau (Vietnamese traditional monochord instrument) soloist Ngo Tra My.

The other artists are Germany's Eva Zöllner, one of the most active accordionists of her generation and dedicated to contemporary music.

Séverine Ballon is a cellist and composer from France who practice draws as much on key works from the repertory as on her numerous collaborations with composers, working in the intimacy of the fabric of sound.

Ute Wassermann from Ghana is internationally known for her many-voiced and extreme vocal sound-language. Her methods to extend the voice include the use of bird whistles, lo-fi electronics, resonators, and field recordings.

The event starting at 7 p.m. will be streamed on the Goethe Institute's social media pages for free.
