‘Nobody plays guitar like him,’ wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper about Nguyên Lê. Born of Vietnamese parents in Paris in 1959, Nguyên Lê is one of the most versatile, distinctive and independent guitarists in the world – going far beyond the bounds of jazz music and shaped by the most varied of influences such as Asian music, modern jazz, fusion or classic rock.
The guitarist’s list of recording credits includes names such as Melanie C (Spice Girls), Hayley Westenra, Leanne Mitchell and Anna Leddra Chapman. During his career he has worked with some of the finest musicians in the world, including Larry Carlton, Albert Lee, Scott Henderson, Brent Mason and Brett Garsed just to name a few.
Lê’s Streams Quartet is dedicated to creating new sounds rooted in ancient cultures. Its goal is to explore the multiple dimensions of cross-breeding jazz and indigenous music as a fertile ground for composition and improvisation. This is an exceptional concert not to be missed!
