Huu Bac Quintet
Presented by Anvil Theatre
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-stringzither), 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.
