Music from a Place I Left Behind a Long Time Ago

Trang also brought back to me from Saigon the CD of hauntingly beautiful music of Xuan Hieu, a young and talented Vietnamese saxophone player.

This is one of the saddest songs, " Bien Can", or "Shallow Sea" in English.

I cry tonight, Saigon, from missing you so much...


  1. That's a beautiful piece of music. Very evocative.

  2. So beautiful and sad, just lovely! I've bookmarked this, thanks for sharing:)

  3. It's hard not to get caught up in feelings of intense nostalgia hearing this song...
    They say it becomes increasingly easy, as you get older, to drown in nostalgia.
    You are not alone, Leila!
    Hope you feel better soon.

  4. Love this Leila - thanks so much.
