Credit David Chesky with putting out--at least occasionally--some really intriguing music.
This work consists of several tracks played by three Chinese musicians with traditional instruments, and an American synthesist.
The choice of material is flawless--a perfect mix of ancient songs and new compositions.
The playing is great, creating moods of beauty and serenity.
While there are quite a few CDs available in the worldbeat category,
none that I know of does what this album does, which is to envelope the
listener in a deep feeling of Chinese life.
You may not be in China, but you definitely understand what it may be like, at least sensually.
