The Huu Bac Quintet 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.

The visual artist for this performance will be Albert Gerow, who will exhibit a wide variety of colourful and attractive paintings. And plan to enjoy the intermission concession, with baking by Linda Blackwell and a surprise from the Dragon Palace Restaurant. Tickets are now on sale at LDFC Printing and Stationery and the Lakes Artistan Centre, at LDAC’s regular prices.
