There are likely very few musicians who explore the concept of "jazz" and the possibilities of their instruments as extensively as guitarist Nguyên Lê. On "Hà Nôi Duo," he collaborates with the young Vietnamese singer and multi-instrumentalist Ngô Hồng Quang for a new adventure that bridges the gap between East and West, tradition and modernity, folklore, jazz, rock, and pop.

Nguyên Lê
"No one plays guitar like he does," wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about Nguyên Lê, the very first exclusive artist signed by ACT. Born in 1959 in Paris to Vietnamese parents, he is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitarists, with influences ranging far beyond jazz, including Asian music, modern jazz, fusion, and classic rock.
