From Hue, Thu Hien is one of Vietnam's greatest singers. She seems to have two voices; the very Vietnamese and beautiful singing style and then an occasional operatic upper register. The music is always full of Vietnamese flavours in the instrumentation and vocals with some schmaltzy backing thrown in for local tastes. Nevertheless, her great voice ultimately triumphs over the bland bits. Some wonderful, haunting music here among this CD's 10 tracks and 53 minutes.
