American singer Denise Mininfield's second tour of Vietnam will take her to the country's four largest cities beginning tomorrow, according to the US Consulate in HCM City.

Mininfield will rejoin Vietnamese saxophonist Tran Manh Tuan, whom she performed with in 2004, and other top Vietnamese jazz musicians tomorrow at the HCM City Opera House.

She will then travel to the central coastal city of Da Nang for a concert at the Trung Vuong Theatre on Saturday.

Mininfield will also conduct workshops on stage performance and the history of jazz at the HCM City Conservatory of Music and the Da Nang College of Foreign Languages.

She will also stage concerts and workshops in Hai Phong on January 29 and 30 and Hanoi on January 31.

Born in Berkeley, California, Mininfield began playing music as a teenager with her award-winning Berkeley High School jazz band and went on to study music in university.

She sings in a broad range of styles from rock and roll and R&B to classical and jazz.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
