About the artists
Hugo Diaz’s tango music brought Kelvin Leung, Hong Kong harmonica player, and Fernando Rezk, bandoneònist and composer from Argentina together in 2018. They have been working together for the performance at Festivalito de Tango en Hong Kong 2019. Kelvin Leung won the Chromatic Harmonica Solo (Adult) in World Harmonica Festival 2013, Germany, among other international awards, when he was only a student. Kelvin was also the youngest jury members of the Seoul International Harmonica Festival 2016 to 2018. In 2017, he was selected by RTHK Radio 4 as one of the Young Music Makers. Fernando Rezk studied bandoneon, harmony and composition at the The Conservatory of Music of the Argentinian Musicians' Union. A former member of important tango orchestras and ensemble, Fernando teaches and performs in Asia regularly since 2010.
Kelvin Leung is equally comfortable in classical and popular music which took him to various musicians, such as pianist Janice Tsui and guitarist Aaron Lui. Currently a music student at The Chinese University of Hong Kong under the tutelage of Julie Kuok, Janice is a prize-winner of Antonio Vivaldi International Competition Vienna in 2018. She is the pianist of Opera Hong Kong Children Chorus. Aaron’s musical journey started with violin and learn changed to guitar which he currently learns from Christopher Wong. His love of music has driven me to minor music during his undergraduate studies at The University of Hong Kong.
