Monthly Music Discovery

April 2019

Welcome to our new monthly music discovery project. This project seeks to help curate a monthly playlist with music that has to do with Vietnamese music. In these playlists, songs are submitted to the curator for addition or chosen by the curator based on the monthly theme. These playlists can be shared and embedded using the open source “SoundCloud” so individuals have the option to use the music in whichever medium that will provide the user with the best possible experience. The main idea behind this project is to follow a different era or mood that will be on a rotation which will allow a large amount of music to be share among our constituents. These playlists can used during general body meetings to introduce their members to Vietnamese music or help with music discovery for dance & shows.

For the month of April, the themes feature songs about feelings ranging from breakups to unrequited love. In Vietnamese these types of songs generally, fall under Nhạc buồn which translates to ‘Sad Music’. This month nhạc buồn and how we express our emotion in modern culture with the concept of sadboi hours (a time where people express emotions and can express their feelings) will hopefully get you in your feels.
