Si Ji

Xuefei Yang: Si Ji CD
I've been listening to Xuefei Yang's new CD, Si Ji every day for the last week and a half. It's an amazing disc of transcriptions of traditional Chinese music, as well as Chinese-inspired western compositions.

What amazes me is that so many of the techniques that I think of as Spanish or Latin American sound, on this disc, as if they were Chinese from the get-go. But don't take my word for it. Click here and listen to "Yi Dance."

Tone and technique are both right there, which makes it easy to over look the "babe of the month" packaging and promotion.
