Prairie Debut presents Huu Bac Quintet

Artist Website:

Canadian artist Huu Bac Quach leads an Asian-influenced jazz ensemble that weaves together contemporary jazz with the sounds and traditions of Peru, China, and Vietnam. Bac's travels inspired the compositions that create an intriguing musical dialogue, resulting in a masterful and incandescent blend of cultures. Bac's background includes intensive studies of the Vietnamese monochord and the Chinese fiddle, as well as encounters with Afro-Peruvian and Andean music. The award-winning quintet has toured North America and Asia, and Bac has twice recorded with Cirque du Soleil. This is jazz with an eclectic twist that seamlessly intertwines contrasting musical traditions in a punchy and light-hearted interplay of sound.
