So far the EU Music Festival has been a festival with its main focus on jazz, but this year they have expanded the horizon and will now embrace virtually all genres. moi Caprice will represent Denmark at the EU Festival, which is going to take place in Vietnam, where the band is to play in both Hanoi and in the Dak Lak province in early December.
moi Caprice represents the young innovative, alternative music scene in Denmark and the band’s gigs are unquestionably going to be quite an eye-opener for the Vietnamese audience. Obviously, for moi Caprice on the other hand, it will be a completely new and different audience. In addition to playing gigs, the guys in moi Caprice are also to take part in a workshop with students from the “Military Arts and Culture College”. The workshop will bring together Danish and Vietnamese musicians and give them the opportunity to learn from each other.
moi Caprice front man Michael Møller explains the band’s presence at the EU Music Festival this way,
“They called our booker to ask if we were interested. We knew very little about the project but thought it sounded like a great idea – and potentially a great experience – both going to Vietnam to play gigs and jamming with Vietnamese musicians. We have played as a band for many years without actually making that much money. So therefore it’s vital for us that playing gigs is fun. Well, such a trip to Vietnam and the memories you bring back home with you are something you don’t want to miss.”
And like an afterthought he ads, “At the same time, it is also a great opportunity to present our music to the Asian music business”
The EU Music Festival takes place in Vietnam in early December, and moi Caprice’s participation is partly due to the joint efforts of ROSA and the Danish Embassy in Vietnam
