MUSIC: Songs from South East Asia

This time I came across beautiful music from South East Asia and the first one is close to my heart as she is a singer, who sings in Sanskrit too. The language of Gods, the ancient scripture of India is now not spoken out of scholarly pursuits.

The other one is a singing sensation compared to Susan Boyle of Britain. A Taiwanese singer Lin YU Chun sings fabulously. His song on the lines of Whitney Houston’s singing of “I will always love you” hit 9 Million hits in You tube.

Both of them have touched me by their singing hence here…

She is also famous for her ethnic clothes and Tibetan Buddhist style of music. Although she is famous for her ethnic characteristics clothing and Tibetan Buddhist music, she is not a Tibetan girl. Her parents' ancestral home is Shandong province and her grandmother's ancestral home is Inner Mongolia.

She is a singer, lyricist, composer, arranger, music producer, choreographer as well as a dancer. At the same time, she is also called the "first Chinese Sanskrit singer". To Sa Dingding, who she was in the past is not important now. We should pay more attention to her music, to the Zen sensation and Buddhist spirit in her music. To preserve her new image, she must eliminate all distractions.

As a singer, she has a unique voice, special performing mode as well as an unparalleled style. Only people who can endure loneliness can be successful. As a musician, she dropped fame and learned Sanskrit by herself. She visited all the Chinese cultural sites to find inspiration and to derive affluent nutrition for her music. Her musical inspirations all come from Chinese civilization and culture.

As a composer, her open-minded musical ideas made her outstanding on traditional music circuits. Instead, she has combined the modern western electro music with the ancient mythic oriental music in a cross-over way. Her musical style has also become the most advanced and fashionable style in the world. The combination gives the audience a strong acoustic shock and the unique "Sa Dingding style" has formed.

Sa Dingding's music was also appreciated by the Grammy Award judge Eric T. Johnson. The Grammy organizing committee even invited Sa Dingding to America for exchange activities. This is the first time that the Asia Standing Body of Grammy has sent an invitation to a Chinese citizen.

As a dancer, she has never received any professional training. However, relying on her special oriental temperament and her good understanding of music in accordance with Chinese Martial Arts, she has created the unique oriental mystic dances which are aesthetically splendid

Sa Dingding doesn't mean anything special in music, but as a cultural sign it represents a kind of advanced and fashionable temperament as well as China's millennia of cultural history.
