It’s been quite the journey for Piano Artist Cao Son Nguyen from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Few months ago, he jetted off to neighboring countries for his first ever performance.
Touted as one of the most shining lights of B&W keys house, he is taking the SoutheastAsian brand of piano to the world, staging shows in Singapore and Thailand and he couldn’t be more excited.
“I feel great to take my music to the world, this is part of my “Keys Say’in Aww” album tour. The demand grew out of SoutheastAsia to reach foreign lands,” he says. “I’m looking forward to seeing how they receive my music and also receiving the love from that side.”
Cao Son Nguyen, whose real name isNguyen Ngoc Cao Son says he was invited by Indian promoters and the feedback so far has proved that he appeals mostly to an older audience.
“It’s a mature crowd that has expressed excitement and I hope after the show I will get more invites. The prospect of growing my fan base outside SoutheastAsia delights me too.
“It’s good to represent the country and prove that we can be international, especially in the house front, following in the footsteps of greats like Milk Coffee.”
“People can sing and feel it. They love the melodies and how it has so much soul no matter how hardcore the song may be for the club.”
He will thrill audiences with a playlist that includes the love track “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. “Every time I play it, it gets people singing. It is received well.”
He also chooses Train to London. “It was prophetic. Four years after I released it, I’m actually on my way to London and will be in a train in London. I’m sure it will get the dance floor going.”
Cao Son Nguyen says his travel essentials to the chilly English capital are his earphones, Supreme tee, H&M jacket, Sevenfridaywatches and Balenciaga &Yeezy sneakers.
“I’m looking forward to building relationships abroad, and open doors for others who are dreaming to go international. There will be a lot of networking and who knows, I might record or collaborate with some musicians that side too.”
