13th District

Episode 28 - Paris Audio Tour; Lullabies

The French Quarter in Hà Nội is a remnant of colonialism but the Asian Quarter in Paris is a portrait of the diaspora. This week, we take a stroll through the streets of Quận 13, or Paris’s 13th district, with our guide Sơn Trần and Loa’s Vinh Trần.

Lullabies are not unique to Vietnamese culture, but Vietnamese lullabies are unique in that they can still be lovable and charming while speaking to the hardships of life. Giang Nguyễn gives us a little musical lesson on lullabies in this week’s "Vietnamism."
