Thu Le is an international, award-winning classical guitarist and certified guitar teacher. She began playing at the age of four, and was the youngest-ever student admitted to the prestigious National Conservatory of Music in Hanoi. She has performed as a soloist and hosting a series of successful master classes throughout North America, UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as in her home country of Vietnam. This will be Thu Le’s IGN debut. More at thuleguitarist.com.

Inspired by the beautiful Hawaiian landscapes and the sounds of the islands, Jim “Kimo” West has become one of the world’s foremost players in Hawaii’s iconic guitar style, “ki ho’alu” or “Slack Key guitar.”  A Grammy award winner, and three-time Na Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) nominee, West was also honored with the LA Treasures Award for his efforts in keeping this acoustic tradition alive. This will be West’s second time joining the IGN tour. More at jimkimowest.com.

Lulo Reinhardt, coming from the famous Reinhardt family, is a descendant in the long line of skilled and successful Sinti musicians, including the legendary gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. While carrying on the family tradition, Lulo incorporates new Latin rhythms in a style he calls Latin Swing. Returning to the IGN tour as guest host, Lulo always delights audiences with his passionate performances, strong percussive playing and lighting solos. More at lulo-reinhardt-project.de
