Vietnamese musicians come up with a charity initiative ‘Muzik Dap Dich' (Stamping Out Covid With Music)’ to support a local food bank while promoting creativity and positivity amid the ongoing lockdown. 

The 'Muzik Dap Dich' (Stamping Out Covid With Music) charity campaign was initiated by a group of local artists called SpaceSpeakers. The charity initiative calls upon rappers, dancers and producers to create videos using the beat SpaceSpeakers produced. For each selected video posted on their Facebook, the group would send 100 kilograms of rice to the Ho Chi Minh City Fatherland Front Committee.

In his video, rapper Binz, wore a face mask while singing: "Just stay at home with the guitar, don't go out or you will face complaints..." Meanwhile, singer Tien Tien composed a song about her longing for friends amid the lockdown while singer Soobin Hoang Son told his fans to avoid online negativity. 

In 72 hours, the program contributed over 7,000 kilos of rice to the charity foundation. 

A representative of SpaceSpeakers said: "The campaign literally means ‘to use music to stamp out the pandemic’. Through music, we hope to heal the spirit and revive positive energy within the community.”

The group SpaceSpeakers was founded by producer Touliver in 2011 as a platform to highlight rap, hip hop and electronic music in Vietnam. To date, it has 11 artists.
