Female guitarists to perform in Hanoi

Fingerstyle – a new genre of solo guitar music in Vietnam, has been thriving in recent years. One simple way of describing this genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he/she is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective for the acoustic guitar and is currently drawing music lovers’ attention.

Female guitarists will showcase their individual guitar styles, genres and skills in the performance.
