      11/13/12 "Folk Songs of Vietnam" - Pham Duy - Vietnam’s musical heritage is so rich and diverse that each region- North, Central, and South- produces a unique music of its own. As the liner notes indicate, “no song repeats in any two regions of Viet Nam.” The album presents traditional folk songs from each region, showcasing the music that singer Pham Duy discovered. The songs are sung by professional vocalists, each representing their native region of Vietnam.
