CAMA is bringing back friends and favourites from around the world for what it promises will be a scorching night of dance-floor, Hanoi-style mayhem. This late-nighter out by the river in Tay Ho is a celebration of the 10 years that has seen CAMA organise 10 festivals and bring in 200 acts to Vietnam.
An outdoor event, the night features The KDMS (UK, Electro Soul); DJ Frank Gossner (Germany, Voodoo Funk); Artur 8 (Poland, Disco House); Fayah Combo (France/Vietnam, DJ Polo featuring Selecta Elpee), and The CAMA Allstars (a Hanoi original).
The KDMS combine hypnotic rhythms with addictive pop melodies carrying clever lyrics — regarded by some as a rare achievement in today’s formulaic world of club-inspired pop music. They feature prolific British singer Kathy Diamond, who CAMA calls “the true disco diva for the 21st century.”
Frank Gossner, a long-time friend of CAMA, is noted for carrying the records that nobody else has, and will journey to Vietnam with his suitcase of African sounds, infectious rhythms and delectable beats for this birthday bash.
The Faya Combo has been with CAMA from the start, with hip-hop head DJ Polo and Selecta Elpee joining forces for a dose of dancehall, hip hop, reggae and dub vibes. The extensive early house and disco knowledge of Artur 8 will also be on show.
This anniversary party will feature a riverside BBQ, ATK drink specials, and all the usual tub-thumping tomfoolery, CAMA promises
Tickets cost VND200,000 at the door or VND150,000 in advance. Entrance is free before 8pm.
CAMA’s 10-year anniversary will take place at Song Hong Village (Lang Song Hong), Ngo 144 An Duong Vuong, Tay Ho
