Paye Srinarong and Paulo Zereu look like complete opposites. Juxtaposed, the two are a little reminiscent of Luke Skywalker and Yoda. Had the energetic and talented young Jedi been Thailand's most successful living violinist, he would probably look much like Paye; stylish in his purple button-down and designer jeans, the genre-defying frontman of Vietrio moves with the boundless enthusiasm of a young man eager to attack his next project.
Zereu, by contrast, is every bit as relaxed and laidback as a world-class musician can be, with the manner of someone who has seen it all before and has wisdom to impart, not unlike the Jedi master. The Brazilian pianist has lived around the world, and his voice reflects the experience of having spent years in Europe, South America and Asia.
The pair share their musical experiences with Life and reveal what the audience can expect when they team up for a concert at Thailand Cultural Centre tomorrow.
