The MV in Vietnamese is based on the melody of Turkish folk songs. The message of the song is praising peace and protesting against war, with youthful and vibrant lyrics and melody.
Accompanying Aslan to make the MV are the two directors Phuong Thao, Nhan Son along with the Ho Guom Audio – Video team.
After the MV appeared on youtube.com, Aslan and the W-Unit dance group were invited to perform in September this year at the world cultural festival in Norway’s capital.
Erdem Aslan was born in 1987. He performed as a comedian in his native Turkey; however, he was in an accident and he cannot continue his arts career. When Turkish businessmen who worked in Vietnam asked him to come to the country for a translator position, he did some research on Vietnam and accepted their proposal.
After eight months studying Vietnamese and graduating from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Aslan went to Hanoi to work as a translator. He found he learned Vietnamese the fastest through songs, and that’s also the path that led him to singing. He collaborated with singer Khanh Phuong, and their collaborative work once ranked high on the charts.
In 2013, with the support of the Turkish Embassy in Vietnam, Aslan released his debut album named “The Story of Aslan”. On the success of this debut album, Aslan received many invitations to collaborate and become one of the favorite foreign artists in Vietnam. He also participated in the sitcom comedy “Women are No. 1” broadcast on VTV3.
Coming to Vietnam, Aslan’s health gradually improved, he decided to settle in Vietnam and get married to a Vietnamese woman.
Most of the scenes appearing in the MV, such as the Hanoi Opera House, Long Bien Bridge, Old Quarter, and Hoan Kiem Lake, are specific locations bearing the historical impression of Hanoi – The peaceful city.
