Born in East Malaysia, Victor Yong is now base in Vancouver, Canada. His wide interests in music range from Country to Latin, Rock to light Jazz. Victor enjoys a challenge to play different types of music as it opens up his mind to experience other forms and styles of playing. This aspiration to explore has ultimately found in him the passion for Latin music. Check out his music here.
Some of his past experiences have included performing with the Late great Robbie King (Mr. Motown). His early years have seen him in the UBC Jazz band under the direction of the Late great trombonist/conductor Dave Robbins. His work as a guitarist/arranger can be found in the music of Deborah Ledon in her debut CD Spilling inside out. Click here for a review. His playing can also be heard on Asian Pop singer Gigi Gu's Latin influenced CD.
Over the years, Victor has worked with HK/Vancouver music director/keyboardist Tony Arevalo Jr., and Dominic Chung backing up visiting artists from Hong Kong.
Besides busy working as a session player, Victor is running his own band The Orient Express specialising in Asian Pop/dance music and of course his own personal project with the 2010 release of his debut CD Dawn of the Carnival.
