We have received the first sound bite/sound gift from one of this year’s A Festival participants. Lý Đợi, a Vietnamese poet, has forwarded us a reading of his two poems in Vietnamese. The text in Vietnamese is not available yet, and we can talk about the quandary of making texts public in Vietnam at the festival, but for now, you might enjoy listening to Lý Đợi’s reading without any textual support? Consider it a funny song in a foreign language.
Have a great week and stay tuned for more tunes, readings and/or voices soon,
