HCM CITY – HCM City Television will broadcast a new music/talk show about HCM City and its people.

The show entitled “Trò Chuyện Cùng Thời Gian” (Conversation about Life) will feature famous songs about the country, HCM City and love, which are familiar to Vietnamese people in different generations.

The programme will attract veteran singers such as People’s Artist Thanh Thuý, Cẩm Vân, and Thanh Ngọc, who will talk about beautiful songs of the city, and the music careers of well-known composers and participating singers.

Singer Thuý will talk about her youth life and music journey in the city, while Vân will tell interesting stories of Trịnh Công Sơn, one of the most famous Vietnamese composers.

The artists will perform Thành Phố Tình Yêu Và Nỗi Nhớ (The City of Love and Nostalgia) composed by Phạm Minh Tuấn to Nguyễn Nhật Ánh’s poem, and Con Đường Có Lá Me Bay (Streets of Tamarind Trees) composed by Hoàng Hiệp to Diệp Minh Tuyền’s poem, and Sơn’s compositions Diễm Xưa (Diễm, My Cherished Old Flame) and Sóng Về Đâu (Where Waves Go).

Thuý, one of the most popular Vietnamese singers of folk and revolutionary music, won the HTV Singing Contest in 1994 when she was 17, and gained first prize at the National TV Singing Contest in 1997.

In 2023, she was conferred the title of People’s Artist. She is currently the deputy director of the city Department of Culture and Sports.

Meanwhile, Vân rose to fame in 1981 after a performance of Bài Ca Không Quên (Unforgettable Song) by composer Phạm Minh Tuấn.

She has won several awards at national music festivals and singing contests, and been invited to perform in many countries including France, Germany, Australia and the US.

The “Trò Chuyện Cùng Thời Gian” show will be broadcast on HTV Music channel at 9pm on the second Friday of each month starting in March. Tùng Leo will be the host of the show. –
