With the aim to bring the world’s music closer to Vietnamese audiences, on 13 October 2016, SOUL Live Project collaborated with the British Council Vietnam to successfully mount the concert “Rukhsana Merrise in Vietnam”, featuring Rukhsana Merrise from London and the emerging artist Bich Ngoc (Runner-up of Vietnam Idol 2015).

Rukhsana Merrise combined a unique blend of folk, soul, and hip hop through her hugely thrilling voice. With powerful lyrics, intimate melodies and the honesty in each of her compositions, she definitely captured the hearts of the audience. Overall, the experience was immensely fulfilling.
