Celestial Harmonies recognizes that there is a great sisterhood in the world of music. With that thought in mind, Sisters: Women's Music From Celestial Harmonies was born - a unique compilation featuring fourteen female artists/groups from Celestial Harmonies. To be a musician is to take on one of the most emotionally demanding, exasperating, and deeply satisfying tasks that any human being can undertake. The composers and performers included in this anthology showcase the diversity of women who have chosen to be music makers and their commitment to creating an engaging, stimulating and courageous world of music.Here are women from Japan, India, England, Australia, Armenia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and North America; all testimony that music is the universal language. A common thread throughout this recording is that the women are all musical alchemists with a deep sense of history: blending ancient song with modern production, or actively involved in extending the boundary of possibilities for their chosen instrument. We are fascinated by all that is shared by women in different historical periods and social systems, like the songs of Hidegard von Bingen, who at a time when few women were accorded respect, became a highly regarded and sought after writer, poet, composer and visionary, or the courage of Vietnamese sisters Trung Trac and Trug Njh, whose bravery is commemorated in song and dance.
