In Montreal, November 2013, Huu Bac Quach performs his first concert with his quintet skilfully combining his Vietnamese and Chinese heritages to North American Jazz music.
Backed by a solid team of some of the most prominent musicians on the up and coming Montreal jazz scene, Huu Bac performs his compositions inspired by his numerous travels in Asia, Europe and South America. He is accompanied by Guillaume Martineau on piano, Marie-Neige Lavigne on violin, Jean-Félix Mailloux on upright bass and Etienne Mason on drums.
In concert, he charms a large public through the beauty and intensity of his musical pieces as well as through his impressive mastery of the dan bau (vietnamese monochord), the erhu (chinese fiddle), the quena (andean flute) and the jazz guitar.
The Huu Bac Quintet delivers a true dialogue between Asian, North and South American cultures in a contemporary, original and unique way!
