The end of the Vietnam War in 1975 opened a new chapter in the history of the country. The 30 of April, 1975 is a day of many meanings: to the majority Vietnamese, it is an unforgettable day for the people to return to peace and rebuild the country after 21 years of civil war with the intervention of the foreigners whereas to others, this day means the fall of Saigon and the beginning of a long exile with arduous challenges. Lots of Southerners among them, many Saigon artists fled the country to America, Europe and Australia. Paris and then Orange County became the cultural center that attracted most of the reputed Saigon singers to come and live and continue their activities. Many entertainment companies were born, many music products were created and many concerts were organized to serve the Vietnamese diaspora. A school of music appeared and developed in France and in the USA in parallel with Vietnamese music in the country. Overseas V-Pop has experienced ups and downs, golden time and dark time and renaissance in their development since 1975.
50 years of overseas V-Pop studies the background into which Vietnamese overseas music was born and develops: its styles, themes as well as its own particularity. The study also examines its identity and originality, its positive role in diversifying and modernizing of Vietnam’s pop culture and its active role in the promotion of the yellow music in Vietnam and across the world.
