Tw Days In Hanoi
Release Date: 02/12/2011
Catalogue No.: DT2
Record Label: Fuse Distribution
Format: CD

Nationally acclaimed Vietnamese master musician, Kim Sinh has become something of a cult figure among guitarists, particularly after slide-guitar guru, Ry Cooder recorded with him in the 1990’s. Born in 1930 in Hanoi, Kim learned a variety of stringed instruments at a young age, including Hawaiian slide guitar. He is a true musical innovator - having developed a unique approach to the traditional Vietnamese style of ‘Cai Luong’.

In September of 2008, much respected Australian guitarist and 3-time ARIA nominee (Backsliders), Dom Turner, whose Mississippi tinged blues and overdriven steel guitar playing is well known on the national circuit, traveled to Hanoi to record with Kim. Although essentially a 2 day project, it was the culmination of years of planning stretching back to 2005 when, the pair collaborated as part of an ABC Radio National project that was recorded and broadcast nationally that year.

Two Days in Hanoi was literally recorded in an intense, 2 day improvisational session at a studio in one of Hanoi’s typical French influenced terrace houses in the backstreets of a suburb called Dong Da. This longawaited album is a musical blend of Kim’s singular Hawaiian influenced ’Cai Luong’ and Dom’s blues soaked guitar and vocals.
