Lao Xao Trio

On their second album Múa ô (Umbrelladance), Dresden based Lao Xao Trio presents once more re-arranged vietnamese folks songs, however this time, they added further traditional instruments such as 17-string zither đàn tranh and monochord đàn bầu. The result is a mix of far-eastern melodies, jazzy harmonies, gentle ballads, blues, groove and handmade ›electronic‹ trance sounds.

Lao Xao Trio was set up in 2005 by Khanh Nguyen (voice, percussion), Stefan Wehrenpfennig (guitar) and Diethard Krause (cello). The young trio has won the World Music Competition »Creole Mitteldeutschland 2011« and attracted the professional audience's attention at the finals of the Creole Competition in Berlin. After very promising live performances in the past (amoung them concerts at Weltnacht Festival Bielefeld, Transvocale and the public radio station WDR).
