Vietnamese celebrations like the Lunar New Year Festival (Tet), the Mid-autumn Festival, Teachers’ Day, and Independence Day have featured in the search engine’s doodles.

Son, born in Dak Lak Province in the Central Highlands, was raised in a Buddhist family by parents who wrote poetry. Educated at the Lycée Francais School in the ancient imperial city of Hue, he also studied philosophy at the Lycée Jean Jacques Rousseau in Saigon.

He became a musician and songwriter in the 1950s, writing on themes ranging from love and romance to philosophy.

Vietnamese musician Trinh Cong Son features in Google Doodle on February 28, 2019.

His most famous songs include ‘Diem Xua’ (Old Love), ‘Ha Trang’ (White Summer) and ‘Cat Bui’ (Dusts).

His ‘Ngu Di Con’ (Lullaby) about the mother of a fallen soldier was a hit in Japan in the 1970s, selling over two million copies.

Son was also a poet, painter and occasional actor.

He died in Saigon in 2001, but his musical legacy lives on, with his songs still popular and performed by some of the country’s top singers like Khanh Ly and Hong Nhung.
