    What are you listening to - 2012

    Oops - delayed start to the new thread this year. I have been much too busy to listen to much over the past few days and to stick with tradition and start the new thread.

    We have just been to see one of our choir members who also sings with an Opera Company in this role at a nearby theatre:


    Stipendia enim peccati mors sunt.
    "Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem" : Guillelmus de Occam

    Do not annoy the Dragonsfor you are small and crunchy and good with Ketchup.

    Madredeus

    Named after a Tram-terminus in Lisbon next to their first rehearsal room. I have been listening to them since 1994, after I saw the Wim Wenders film, Lisbon Story.


    Teresa Salgueiro´s voice is outstanding, & the power & clarity is even better when unplugged.
    From the DVD "Les Açores de Madredeus".


    This was filmed in Brighton, East Sussex, UK


    From the album "o espirito da paz"

    Sa Dingding - Alive & Ha Ha Li Li

    She sings in Mandarin, Tibetan, Mongolian, Sanskrit, Laghu, & a self-made language.

    Title-track from her second album, Alive - 2007

    Track 1 on her third album, Harmony - 2010
    HA HA LILI This is a legend I learnt from the Wa people in Yunnan. A long time ago, the earth and heaven were connected by a huge tree and people lived in caves, along with very mysterious animals. One day, a golden rooster appeared and started kicking the tree until it fell down, separating earth and heaven. That's when the people and animals left the caves and began to live in nature.

    There's a very strong, very Chinese beat to this one, and it is started with a drum used by the ethnic people Wa during religious ceremonies. There are also many layers of backing vocals, which were performed by a group of very old Wa people, some of whom have died since we recorded them.

    I have been trying to find a copy of her first album, Dong Ba La (咚巴啦), released in 2001 under her birth-name, Zhou Peng, without much success. If anyone knows where I can buy a CD, or a download, please PM me the URL.

    (I wonder what a collaboration with Bjork would be like?)
