CD Reviews

Unusual Vietnamese music
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 09/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Vietnamese classical court ensemble plays in a style which dates from the 11th Century. For a while during the Vietnam War, the city of Hue retained its sacrosanct hands-off status, but eventually got engulfed by the conflict. The ensemble, meanwhile, became cultural ambassadors -- a position they continue to fill. The striking thing about the repertoire is how closely it resembles classical Chinese and Japanese music, with koto-like lutes and languid vocals, rather than the quirky and hypnotic folk styles of various Vietnamese provinces. Meditative, stately music... definitely worth checking out!"
Beautiful Music

"A top quality production and an excellent blend of voice and instruments, especially track 9 (title: A Thousand Miles From Home)."
My vietnamese born daughter loves this
Sara J. Moyer | 06/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My adopted, vietnamese born daughter listens to this every night to fall asleep. We pre-listened to many available CDs but this is the one she picked for her christmas list. It's easier on western ears than some of the others out there."
