About the event

Mai Khôi founded Mai Khôi and the Dissidents in Vietnam in 2017 as  a vehicle to perform her genre-busting songs protesting government  censorship and police violence. The band performed secretly at  underground shows in Hanoi until threats from the Vietnamese government  forced the band to change their name, then ultimately dissolve.  Following Khôi’s exile to the United States, she reformed the band with  local Pittsburgh musicians while continuing the group’s radical mission.  The American iteration of Mai Khôi and the Dissidents is an eclectic  and experimental jazz-pop quintet that’s as likely to launch into a  protest song or collective improvisation as a lullaby or love ballad.  They have also toured Khôi’s multimedia stage show Bad Activist at high-profile venues in Pittsburgh, New York, and Las Vegas.
