Tran Quang Hai in Saigon

Lucy and her guides, Vietnamese musicians, Tran Quang Hai and Bach Yen, are in Saigon –the first time these two musicians have stepped back into the city of their birth after 41 years in exile. Along the way, she hears ritual music played on two drums, representing Yin and Yang. She also meets Bach Yen, and discovers more about his return to Saigon after being in exile and how she is affected by the melodies of ritual music she last heard as a child.
