CHI Quartet at FRC, November 30th at 9:00 pm
The Rui Cunha Foundation and the Macau Jazz Promotion Association present the CHI Quartet at the Saturday Night with Jazz monthly show, on November 30th at 9 pm. The European band will be in town for this concert, during their “Unspoken Tour”, and is expected to also play in Zhuhai and Hong Kong, from 28th November to 12th December.
This is also a special occasion to celebrate the threshold of the 1000th event promoted by the Rui Cunha Foundation, after more than seven years of cultural activities. The screening of a short documentary film at the intermission will be showing the many jazz nights that have brought leading musical names to the territory, under the guidance of organizer Mars Lei, President of Macau Jazz Promotion Association.
Based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, the quartet is composed of young talents such as Macao-born pianist Siu Tin Chi, the project mentor, soloist Armand van Wijck, Dutch Django Buiting and Spanish bassist Patricia Mancheño. The ensemble has a deep soulful approach to the modern and minimalist inspired jazz, influenced by Scandinavian musicians such as Esbjörn Svensson.
