Shot this video during my recent trip to Vietnam. Late one night this kid was busking up and down the streets of Hanoi. Even though I couldn’t understand a word he was singing, I found him to be incredibly captivating. With a tattered guitar in one hand, a slightly wounded voice, a battery-pack strapped to his back, and a mildly disfigured friend serving as a roadie, I’m pretty sure this guy had a pretty heavy back story. And is it just me, or does his song kind of sounded like “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers? Amigright? Anyway, if anyone out there in internet land knows speaks Vietnamese and knows what he is singing, let me know.
