The singer said that his painting on the stage with the image of a teacher in the lecture hall is completely opposite.
Speaking of Ho Trung Dung, the audience will remember the male singer who has a passion for jazz. In contrast to the stiff picture, seriously on stage, in real life, Ho Trung Dung is a young, dynamic guy.
He admitted that he can not hide his emotions, he can laugh all day with his friends and relatives. But he publicly admits that he is depressed, many people do not understand, he will misunderstand him.
Ho Trung Dung was a student at the German faculty of the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (2000-2004). Since graduating, he has taught German literature and joined the Cadillac group.
In the play Ho Trung Dung he did not rush, he did not make noise. Each song is full of chirps and percussions, attention. Sometimes vocals "Nostalgia" For the last 6 years, together with Vo Thien Thanh, they gathered material from the entire road in the corner of Saigon to complete the album. "Saigon Feel", including 9 well-known songs Love 2000, Cyclo, Frog, Eyes …
Day "Saigon Feel" Slow down, Ho Trung Dung breathed a sigh of relief. "Oh, I made this album so long?", he is funny.
Ho Trung Dung and Vo Thien Thanh took 6 years to finish the album "Saigon Feel."
– His passion for jazz, which makes him connect with musician Vo Thien Thanh – author of pop hits, dance …?
– "Saigon Feel" is the feeling of two men singing about Saigon, bringing a completely different color in history when I joined Vo Thien Thanh. The record is jazz, not too deep, sad, but rather lively, urban.
Speaking of jazz, people will not think about Vo Thien Thanh. But when we talked with Coffee and Thanh Thanh, they found that they love jazz. After the conversation, he and I started "Saigon Feel". We start the project from 2012 and after 6 years to completion.
You can say that this album is difficult and perfect. What is most needed is that me and Thanh must have inspiration. It's half a year, we do not touch the product because there is no emotion. Half of the songs on the album include hits, the rest is new. So it is not easy with Thanh.
They both have the same passion for jazz.
Personally, I have only 30 minutes to record a pop song, 3 to 4 times … Also in this album "Ever since I appeared" I spent 5 years of recording. complete.
There are many emotions on the album, most of which affect the city. From the hustle and bustle of every man to the life of every other profession. In every message is life experience, not superficial.
I am 29 years old and now 35 years old. I have experienced many fluctuations, including depression and depression. But no matter what, I still have innocence. The opposite brings the shipyard music.
I understand, sometimes I was busy to run to sing, make money, then at some point I understood words, his singing does not matter. I am not worried about whether the song I made is compared to singers who performed and achieved success earlier. I'm sure I'll decide to sing.
Most of the current singers release songs, MVs for online music services, YouTube … He still chooses the traditional way of distributing CDs. Are you worried about sales?
– I think that if everyone is afraid, they also try to run what's hot, the music market will be very boring and one-sided. I know that if the released CD is rejected, condemned. I have been counting so secretly since ancient times. People ask me what kind of rebellious when it is heterogeneous? Ho Trung Dung will never be shocking or sensational. My rebellious way is to do what I believe, even if people say it is difficult now. I will be consistent and I believe that it will bring you some values.
In addition to basic values, it still publishes my album through online channels, applications … It's a way to encourage viewers to listen to the most responsive and current events.
– Does the teacher working in show business cause his image is tight?
– I just stop teaching the first year sing. I've been teaching normally for the last eight years. Teaching is my job.
The way of singing and teaching are two different expressions about me, complementary, but not disturbing. The delivery and perfection of music does not come because I am a teacher. If it was not for me, I would still be. It's a man, my personality.
In the lecture hall I was an artist than other artist. I wear comfortable clothing. I do not wear jeans. I wear earrings for teaching. I throw the shirt off my pants. For me, everything is superficial, the seriousness of a new profession is important. And until I cross the border I will wear, no one has the right to express an opinion, but if there is an opinion, I will not do it anymore.
Teacher Ho Trung Dung is ready to stop learning.
– Does not use social networking sites, does not discuss hot social problems, does not appear in many entertainment events … It seems that his life is calm in bustling show business?
– I explain the habit of not following the noise around me because if you have concerns, we will easily lose our job.
I recently read a part of the famous American artist that he will get tired of the entertainment market, because there are so many people who invent this show, show off, and the scandal is more familiar. I feel so sorry. Sometimes when I accidentally follow many things, my whole day will not focus, I do not want to do anything else.
I do not blame these artists because there are new bridges. I'm worried about the tastes and the taste of some people. If it was for everyone, I would think.
There is an audience in which they are silent, but they always want to have high quality products, instead of ways, the title song is shocking, obscene. I really do not like and I never do such things. That's why I have to try to do things that I believe more.
There are many artists in my team who are on a safe level. Honestly, my music earns from this event. Clean, professional, civilizational, ethical … just so that I could earn good money without doing too much. So why do not people try to improve, but try to run the negative.
Ho Trung Dung believes that one day viewers will see the true value of music, instead of running a trend on social networks.
– He spent six years releasing an album, while few artists took only a few days, even one day the song ended, MV music. Do you see injustice?
– I said do not worry, I'm scolding. I had to calm down and look at the nature of the problem. Market chaos is superficial, although superficial is very flashy. The louder the more people who want to enjoy music will stay away from it. My job is to pull them away. Noisy waves reach another noisy wave, which people say is a trend. I try to imitate them, they will never be equal to them, because of nature and other nature.
Music is difficult to determine in advance, but I think that some sounds will be saturated. Not only me, many other artists do everything to make the music live seriously, kindly.
– Fan sympathy and stand on his side?
– All viewers love me because I do not follow these trends. They support me quietly, not loudly. There are even anti-fanatics in me, but my fans do not shout, they say very cautiously, they do not easily offend others. If there is a reaction, my fans also choose the most civilized way of reacting.
People think that my audience is mostly older people. However, my young audience is also very. From 13 to over 60 years. I believe that I do what I want and do the closest. I do not own myself because I have to sing for everyone. Do not understand that the Vietnamese do not listen to jazz. As I say, they are not noisy people, they prefer social sharing.
If I show my sympathy, my fans will not be displayed on Facebook, only in my inbox. They follow me without any reason, do not comment, but they always buy all my products. And this audience is very big.
We are still selling good CDs, still on stage. But speaking, the sale of words is certainly not. At least the recipients still pay me money, so I can produce other products.
The singer said that in the profession no one treated him well with the "king of Vietnamese music".
