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.

Tickets are now on sale at LDFC Printing and Stationery and the Lakes Artistan Centre, at LDAC’s regular prices.
