Concert for a Gentleman - GUIHANGTAR

Date & time

2pm 20 July 2014


Glebe Town Hall




Le-Tuyen Nguyen

GUIHANGTAR - Le-Tuyen Nguyen (guitar) and Salil Sachdev (percussion) celebrate ANU School of Music Em/Prof Larry Sitsky's 80th birthday.

Guihangtar is a duo comprising guitarist Le-Tuyen Nguyen and percussionist Salil Sachdev. The duo initially emerged as a potential collaboration incorporating the guitar and the Hang (a percussion instrument invented in Switzerland in 2000). However, Guihangtar’s maiden concert in 2010 evolved to include other percussion instruments as well.

Guihangtar performs compositions and arrangements inspired by nature and traditional music not bound by cultural confines.

Traditional melodic and rhythmic idioms weave with Western music exploring the technical and expressive dimensions of the guitar, enhanced with percussion instruments from various parts of the world, creating a distinct sonority.
