Most of my life has been a journey to connect with my Vietnamese roots and culture. I would say the internet has helped bridge that gap greatly. I been hipped to a lot of different communities and entities since then, and amazingly made a lot of allies and friends along the way. But what is most exciting for me has been the rise of the street culture in Southeast Asia and seeing crews and collectives emerge from the cities and jungles.
My homie Tung is an artist and creator based out of Saigon. He runs a few things, namely Later -- a lifestyle brand, and The Saigon Projects, a documentary journey through Vietnam from the lens of these writers. TSGP has been pushing out some amazing videos over the years and this recent episode is a great example of the vibrant energy and love that springs from the countryside and their combined energies. I'm homesick.
