15 Aug. 2023; Myriader af tabte minder
The project is about lost childhood memories of the Danish soprano Ly Tran. She was born in Vietnam and came to Denmark with her family as boat refugees at the age of six. Danish is her main language and even though she still speaks Vietnamese, she has no memories from the time before she was able to speak Danish. She lost memory of her first 6 years. She has written a text based on stories gathered from her family for this project and she also recorded her mother singing Vietnamese lullabies her mother used to sing for her. Nor does she remember this. The composer Aya Yoshida quotes these elements as a part of her music.
