Vietnam is home to more than fifty different ethnic peoples and hundreds of styles of music. The Khac Chi Ensemble features numerous traditional instruments representing the country's rich diversity. These include the dan bau (one-string zither played in harmonic overtones), the ko ni (stick fiddle with a resonating disc held in the player's mouth), and the t'run (suspended bamboo xylophone). The ensemble is led by Khac Chi and Ngoc Bich, two of Vietnam's most innovative and influential musicians. Now based in Vancouver, Canada, they have toured internationally for fifteen years. Their virtuoso performances and unique arrangements have fostered new awarenesses of traditional instruments and styles, both inside and outside Vietnam.
