Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

Viet Thanh Nguyen interviews Thao Nguyen about her documentary Nobody Dies and her music career for Accented: Dialogues in Diaspora.

For this installation of ÁCCENTED: Dialogues in Diaspora, Pulitzer-prize winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen will host a conversation featuring Thao Nguyen from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

For those who do not know her yet, Thao Nguyen has toured nationally and internationally for over 15 years, and her latest album Temple was released in May on Ribbon Music. She recently performed for NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert and one of her most recent music videos for Phenom, plays on the familiar format of being on a Zoom video call. She also produced the documentary Nobody Dies, about her trip to Vietnam with her mother in 2015, 20 years after the normalization of relations between the United States and Vietnam, as a first-person storytelling of her experience as a daughter of Vietnamese refugees returning to a long lost homeland. This is another ÁCCENTED discussion with a Q&A section not to be missed.
