NGÔ THU HIỀN


Thu Hiền is a virtuoso of the Đàn Tranh (Vietnamese Long Board Zither). She started to learn the Đàn Tranh at the age of seven. She practised diligently under the supervision of her parents to master her skills on this instrument. She won a prize in a Đàn Tranh competition at the age of fifteen and since then has performed in public

Thu Hiền now lives in Canberra. She has performed at various musical gatherings and concerts, both in Vietnam and Australia.


A bit about the ‘Đàn tranh cải tiến’

 As we all know, a traditional DT has 16 strings, tuned to the Pentatonic scale; that is there are five notes in the scale. This tuning has reduced its versatility. It cannot play many pieces written for a more versatile instrument like a guitar, piano or violin.

This limitation has been a source of inspiration for experienced artists, who love the characteristic sound of Đàn tranh, to find ways, to innovate, to create a sibling instrument which can handle pieces of music not specifically written for DT on the Pentatonic scale.

Then came ‘Đàn tranh cải tiến’. Here it is. It was created by Nghệ sĩ nhân dân Đỗ Thị Phương Bảo. This new model of the traditional ‘Đàn tranh’ was highly appraised by ‘Hội đồng khoa học nghiệm thu công trinh Đàn tranh cải tiến’ in 1995.

The ‘Đàn tranh cải tiến’ has shared the same general characteristics (such as physical appearance, art works, sound, timbre and playing style) as the ‘Đàn tranh cổ’. Apart from that, it is more versatile than the ‘Đàn tranh cổ’ in terms of performance practice. The tunings for the ‘Đàn tranh cổ’ are arranged in the PENTATONIC scale while the tunings of this new model are based on the Western scales. Furthermore, it was designed with an immovable timber bridge in the middle of the instrument and the traditional bridges made of wood tipped with copper are replaced with small pieces made of stainless-steel which are also called ‘bridges – con nhạn’. These stainless-steel bridges are movable to allow pitches to be tuned to semitones. Traditionally, the artists may use three, four or even five fingers on the right hands to pluck the strings and the left hand’s fingers are used to press on the left side of the strings to bend its pitch and provide ornamentation. Similar to the ‘Đàn tranh cổ’, the ‘Đàn tranh cải tiến’ artists can use their fingers on the right hand to play all traditional music (nhạc cải lương, nhạc chèo, dân ca,…). In addition, the artists can also use their fingers on the left hand to pluck notes on the left side and even the right side of the strings to produce larger chords or scales. This improved instrument is now well incorporated into modern Vietnamese music, and even in many pop performances as an exotic solo or accompaniment to the modern band instruments.

SALIL SACHDEV


Salil Sachdev is on the faculty of music at Bridgewater State University (BSU), Massachusetts, USA. He also chaired the music department for nine years. Salil has composed music for the orchestra, percussion, piano, theatre, voice, and electronic music. His teaching areas comprise music theory, form and analysis, introduction to world music, and introduction to music of Africa. As well, he founded and directed the West African Drumming Ensemble at BSU for fifteen years.

Salill organized the BSU Annual World Music Festival for ten years. His interest in world music has taken him to India, Ireland, Africa, and Cuba. He has studied hand percussion (including West African Djembe drumming), the Bodhrán (Irish drum), and Solkattu, the rhythmic system of south India.

Salil's long term project is to make a series of documentary films on the folk music of India. In 2008, he completed a film on the music of the Sidis, an ethnic group of East African ancestry living in India since the last 800-900 years. Upcoming projects comprise a film on the folk music of Rajasthan, a state in the northwest part of the country, and a film on music in Havana, Cuba.

In 2011, he also made a film on the traditional music of Mali, West Africa.

Guihangtar - Salil & Lê-Tuyên
"GUIHANGTAR DUO”
Guihangtar comprises guitarist Le-Tuyen Nguyen (Australia) and percussionist Salil Sachdev (USA). The duo initially emerged as a potential collaboration incorporating the guitar and the Hang (a percussion instrument invented in Switzerland in 2000). However, Guihangtar’s maiden concert in 2010 evolved to include other percussion instruments as well.

Guihangtar performs compositions and arrangements largely inspired by, but not limited to, nature and traditional music. The essence of the group is such that it is an evolving musical dialogue not bound by any specific cultural confines.

Traditional melodic and rhythmic idioms weave with Western music exploring the technical and expressive dimensions of the guitar, enhanced with percussion instruments from various parts of the world.

Guihangtar exemplifies a continually emerging and exciting interaction between two musicians with varied cultural and musical backgrounds residing on opposite sides of the world. It is an expression of tradition, innovation, and global interaction."
