Thao, I love this! I was visiting family for the holidays and my dad played a video of Vietnamese singer with a voice that possessed that melancholy tremble I think a lot of folks who grew up in Viet households are familiar with.

Her singing gave me goosebumps and inspired me, as a second gen way more comfortable speaking in English, to explore writing a song with that same feel. But, with lyrics about the stories handed down to us from our parents and elders and about generational trauma, resilience, and joy.

Excited to see what else you create through this exploration!
