Nhan Dan Online - Jazz lovers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will have a chance to hear French band Mezcal Jazz Unit once more at a special concert entitled ‘Friends Reunited’.

Mezcal Jazz Unit returns to Hanoi

The two special jazz nights will unfold at the Sofitel Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and the French Cultural Centre (L’Espace) in Hanoi on November 26 and 27.

Following several concerts in France and Vietnam between 2002 and 2007 that led to the creation of ‘Search for Wind’ in 2005, the musicians of Mezcal Jazz Unit are expected to inspire audiences with a combination of western and traditional Vietnamese instruments.

Mezcal Jazz Unit, led by Emmanuel de Gouvello (bass, composition), formed in 1986. Their music is inspired by the musicians’ Mediterranean background, the recollection of traditional melodies, passion for oriental music, rugged energy, a sense of humor and a mix between emotional introspection and a specifically Latin expressive attitude.

During their tours around the world, the band met musicians from Eastern Europe, Asia, India and Africa. Along the way, they gave performances and made music together.
