Bio


Mai Khoi is a Vietnamese singer and musician who composes across folk,
blues, dance and rock genres.


Mai Khoi won Vietnam Television Song and Album of the Year Award in
2010
and has since toured the US and Australia. The 31-year-old recently
married Australian lyricist Benito del Sur and moved to Sydney to start a
multi-racial band by the name of Fish Sauce.


Mai Khoi’s angelic voice and emotional intimacy is ideal for acoustic solo
gigs while her provocative and playful flare puts the ants back in the pants
on sexually charged dancefloors.


Mai Khoi hit the headlines last year when her controversial single Selfie
Orgasm was removed from Zing MP3 after receiving close to 300,000 views
in the first week
. There were even calls for the video and song to be
banned from her homeland – communist Vietnam – for the obscene lyrics
and first-ever depiction of a naked woman in a music video.


“She’s got that 80’s Madonna swagger, self-secure woman, I know
who I am vibe,” says Grammy Award recognised producer Mark
Tarsia
, who mastered her Saigon Boom Boom album.


Mai Khoi is no stranger to controversy and as a Vietnamese celebrity
is somewhat of an anomaly for having spoken out about LGBT rights,
violence against women, and traditional gender stereotypes. From a
country that has made virtually no musical inroads outside of its own
culture, Mai Khoi is charting a highly independent path.


Mai Khoi may well be the first internationally recognised Vietnamese-born
singer and songwriter.
