MUSIC

Vietnamese Singers ♀

A selection of female singers, some of them also models, actresses or pageants. They all look gorgeous and have created wonderful music.

The long tradition of pop music is rather unknown outside of Vietnam, but there have been very talented and successful singers there for many years. Compared to western pop music or e.g. K-pop, modern influences such as dance or rap have only gained acceptance in recent years. Overall, the pop music scene is predominantly characterized by sentimental ballads or R&B music. My impression is that female singers in Vietnam are generally more successful when they sing solemn ballads and sentimental love songs or when they record a song with a well-known male singer who can often also be a rapper. Female solo singers who make very dance-heavy music are still more of an exception. My presentation is far from complete and heavily biased by my music taste and the songs I have heard. I excluded most of the singers who only make ballads and added a few exceptions where such singers produced a very strong ballad to convince me.

But the success of K-Pop and social change are producing more and more younger musicians who happily experiment with styles and bring out songs that do not have to hide in international comparison with pop music. I am trying to briefly introduce some of the musicians I know who also or predominantly music with influences from western pop, dance, techno or hip-hip.

Note: Since I am not Vietnamese or know the language, there may be errors here that are not intended. I am very grateful for any information on incorrect or problematic information, and of course for more information on the aforementioned or other Vietnamese singers from the last few decades.
