Artistic Direction: Huu Bac Quach
Canada (Québec) Composer and multi-instrumentalist, Huu Bac Quach founded his quintet in Montreal, skillfully combining his Vietnamese and Chinese heritages with Jazz music. Backed by a solid team of some of the most prominent musicians on the Montreal jazz scene, Huu Bac performs his original music inspired by his numerous travels in Asia, Europe, and South America. Audiences are charmed by the beauty and intensity of his work and by his mastery of the dan bau (Vietnamese one-string zither), the erhu (Chinese fiddle), the quena (Andean flute), and the jazz guitar. The Huu Bac Quintet delivers an authentic dialogue between Asian, North, and South American cultures in a fresh and exciting way. Performances and workshops for all ages are offered in English, French, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Mandarin.
