In its continuing series of presenting outstanding live musical performances to the Island of Bali the Padma Resort Legian presents a night of uniquely exotic international musical collaboration on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

Part of their current international tour, Bruce Huebner playing a Japanese ancient Shakuhachi bamboo flute combines talents with George Quirin a maestro of the classical Spanish guitar promise to mesmerise their Bali audience as they jointly and severally perform music encompassing the works of J.S. Bach, Antonio Carlos Jobin, Thelonious Sphere Monk, and Agustín Barrios - plus the performance of a number or original compositions.

Both iconoclastic in its unique musical approach and fantastic in the resulting amalgamation – this is a concert not to be missed!

Bruce Huebner has embraced Japan and its ancient musical forms with a enthusiasm that astounds even the native Japanese. He has taken the deceptively simple Japanese bamboo flute – Shakuhachi, and managed to master both its traditional repertoire while at the same time exploring the diverse world of classical and modern music. Hueber’s greatest pride is when visibly moved Japanese tell him they have discovered the great value and mystery of Shakuhachi through its unrivaled mastery by a non-Japanese.

George Quirin is first and foremost a guitarist, but is also a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, collaborator, performer and teacher who works from a base in Santa Barbara, California. An acknowledged musical performer, Quirin has performed at music festivals across the USA and opened shows forte like of Ray Charles, Jackson Browne, and the Chick Corea Electric Band.

A typical performance opens with two solo pieces as George performs a flamenco composition on the Spanish guitar followed by Bruce making a bold and dramatic entrance via the audience performing a centuries-old Buddhist meditative composition on his Shakuhachi flute.

The audience now comfortably settled in and convinced that they are in the presence of musical genius, Bruce and George take the evening up a notch performing a series of duets on two instruments heretofore alien to each other.

Informal and educational, Bruce and George will punctuate the evening with anecdotes and memorable pieces of musical history – revealing along the way that the Japanese flute and Spanish guitar trace their roots to the same cradle of civilization. Musicologists now know that the shakahuchi came to Japan via the ancient Silk Road, while the Guitar is linked to flamenco and Renaissance traditions tracing their antecedents to the Middle Easter Oud.

The Shakuhachi flute and Spanish guitar are two old friends sharing familial links that are now brought to the performance stage in Bali by two old friends who have recorded original compositions and performed to great acclaim on their past and current musical tour.

To whet your musical appetite, listen to the following clip from Youtube where Bruce and George perform “The Raven”.

The one-night-only concert featuring Bruce Huebner on Shakuhachi Flute and George Quirin on Spanish Guitar takes place at Sunday, March 11, 2018 at the Padma Resort Legian. Doors open at 5:30 pm for an hour of canapés and wine, beer and juices before the show starts at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are available on a first-come-first-serve basis for Rp. 300,000 net per person with 50% discounts extended to music school students and expectant mothers and 30% discounts available to Bank Mandiri Card Holders.

Ticket price includes pre-show refreshments, the concert and 10% VAT tax.
