The Festival Like a Jazz Machine turns its gaze towards the East! Two musicians are at the origin of this phenomenon: Nguyên Lê and Ngo Hong Quang. The duo of Vietnamese origin has no equal to combine Asian tradition and jazzy groove. A hybrid that seems obvious here and that gave birth to the album Ha Noi Duo.
For their passage to the festival Like a Jazz Machine, the guitarist and the traditional musician come accompanied. They are joined on stage by the Italian trumpet player Paolo Fresu and the Japanese musician Mieko Miyazaki in the koto - a pinched string instrument emblematic of Japanese music. Edouard Prabhu, Alex Tran and Hao Nhiem Pham complete this Ha Noi Extended Duo and transport us in a few notes on the side of Sapa and Halong Bay.
