Australia’s hottest young percussion group Tetrafide will start its debut tour of Vietnam from May 29-31, with a gala performance at the Hanoi Opera House.

The four-member group is renowned for combining traditional music, high-impact dance and percussion and electrifying electronic beats to create an eclectic and thrilling sound.

The band’s Hanoi appearances will feature a gala performance, “In Rhythm with Nature”, at the Hanoi Opera House on May 30 to celebrate World Environment Day, which falls on June 5.

Opera House guests will also have the opportunity to get a sneak preview of a special photographic exhibition of Vietnamese flora and fauna, sponsored by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).

While in Vietnam, Tetrafide will also give performances at the Vietnam National University, the Museum of Ethnology and the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

According to the Australian Embassy, Tetrafide are one of Australia’s leading cultural exports and have previously performed at the World Expo (Japan), the Rhythmsticks Festival (London), Cork’s Midsummer Festival (Ireland), the Harrogate International Arts Festival (England), the National Folk Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival both in Australia.

They have also toured the UK and Ireland twice, the Philippines and Singapore, as well as playing in virtually every state and territory in Australia.

Tetrafide has released two successful albums (Tetrafide Percussion and Tetralive) and a live DVD called ‘Stick It’.
