From the Westbank to New Orleans East, there is a vibrant community of over 20,000 Vietnamese New Orleanians. Once a week host Kim Vu invites a guest to chat about Vietnamese etiquette, ancient proverbs, Vietnamese events in New Orleans, and Vietnamese food. A Vietnamese-American recently arrived from California, Kim combines her own discovery of the local Vietnamese community with her deep familiarity and love of Vietnamese life and customs. Kim and guests weave a tapestry of fun and pho, Hanoi and poboy, as VietNola explores the world of Vietnamese New Orleanians, here and in Vietnam.
Have you ever been walking the streets of Saigon, looked around, and said to yourself, "this place is great but it's needs more hillbilly soul bands."
Well wish no longer because Kim sat down with Nick Rivette and Davis Zunk of The Wanderlusters. Nick and Davis joined us all the way from Saigon to talk about living and working as an American band playing American music in Vietnam.
So if you're in Vietnam and looking to catch an awesome show, or if you just want to hear what it's like to party in Saigon with Australian dignitaries, listen now!
