Rough Guide to the Music of Vietnam

VARIOUS

Rough Guide to the Music of Vietnam

Ref: FSD3597


Price: 9.99

Vietnam is not yet on the world music map, but clearly deserves to be. This intriguingly varied selection covers the country's styles, from the sturdy, trance-like singing of Huy Du, to the virtuoso, bluesy instrumental work of Kim Sinh, playing a two-stringed lute, or the gently stirring, updated treatment of a traditional song by the Paris-based Huong Thanh. There are western influences in contemporary Vietnam, of course, but the country seems to have escaped domination by guitar or keyboard. Two of the more intriguing tracks feature a one-stringed instrument, the dan bao, which can be heard both on a jazzy shuffle by Blue Asia, and a wildly unexpected treatment of the country-pop favourite (Ghost) Riders in the Sky.

Robin Denslow (The Guardian)

Compiler Paul Fisher has done an excellent job: he shows how traditional instruments and styles have been harnessed to Western pop requirements, but he also lets them speak unadorned. So here is a whole series of instrumental encounters, with the dan bau pre-eminent. This is a monochord - an instrument consisting of a single string, an open box for a soundboard and a sliver of buffalo horn attached to the string which the player delicately bends to alter the pitch: its effect is uncannily like the human voice, and it has often been used to conjure spirits. We also meet the 16-string dan tranh zither, and many varieties of gong, lute, and drum. But the glory of this music lies in the female human voice, with its feline grace and the little catch in the throat which most singers use to heighten the dramatic effect. One ritual song, recorded at a shrine, would alone be enough to justify buying this fascinating CD.

Michael Church (The Scotsman)

Bar Beijing

Ref: FSD4176


Price: 14.99

Beijing is modern day China at its most brash and dynamic yet has also been at the centre of China's imperial past. Oppressive foreign dynasties made it their capital, as did the Communists, resulting in Beijing absorbing a range of outside influences and becoming the hotbed of a subversive youth culture. Bar Beijing reflects the passing of time through the centuries; from imperious classical music to contemporary folk and the latest sounds emanating from the Beijing underground.

The Very Best of The Far East

Ref: FSD2441


Price: 13.99


Double CD compiled by Paul Fisher. 'The Far East may have held a fascination for western travellers for centuries, but strangely enough, the region's music has remained largely unnoticed. For the first time, the Very Best of the Far East links some of the world's most ancient and beautiful cultures and sounds with the bustling vitality and creativity of a largely urban generation. Thus Japanese producers mix Vietnamese, Indonesian or their own treditions with modern dancefloor and laid back rhythms, Okinawan music meets Brazilian beats, or indigenous Japanese music is updated into a living, breathing exciting roots sound. Elsewhere, Vietnamese musicians add jazz inflections to traditional tunes, centuries old Chinese instruments are brought storming into the 21st century with ambient, electronic sounds, while western musicians too add their input to the melting pot. This is a CD to blow away your preconceptions of Far Eastern music, that instead celebrates the diversity, yet unites the music of a region that finally comes of age, the equal of anything, anywhere on the planet.'
