Huu Bac Quintet in Burns Lake

The fourth performance of the Lakes District Arts Council’s twelfth season, by the Huu Bac Quintet, takes place on Saturday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Mennonite Church, one kilometre east of Burns Lake, just off Hwy. 16.

Huu Bac Quach arrived in Montreal from his native Vietnam at the age of two. He absorbed with great enthusiasm the music of his new homeland. At McGill University, he discovered the dan bau (Vietnamese monochord), tutored by master Pham Duc Tranh. The Huu Bac Quintet now delivers a contemporary dialogue between Asian, North and South American cultures. Huu Bac uses everything in his cultural palette, from the dan bau and Andean flute to jazz guitar, creating a sound that is both familiar and mysterious. Backed by some of the most prominent musicians on the Montreal jazz scene, Huu Bac performs compositions inspired by his travels in Asia, Europe and South America.
