Hà Nội Duo started as a collaboration between two Vietnamese musicians, Nguyên Lê and Ngô Hồng Quang. The two artists come from different traditions. Nguyên Lê is a renowned jazz guitarist and composer while Ngô Hồng Quang is a vocalist, plays various Vietnamese traditional musical instruments and is a composer as well.
The two artists’ first album was Hà Nội Duo (Act Music, 2017), a masterful combination of acoustic and electric jazz, ambient electronic sounds and Vietnamese traditional music.
The collaboration continued with international tours under the name Ha Noi Duo, connecting Vietnamese music and audiences with modernity without forgetting the past.
