Overview

Drawn from such diverse lands as Tuva, Tibet, Japan, India, China and Thailand, this single-disc compilation, Holding up Half the Sky: Voices of Asian Women, offers a lovely glimpse at the common spiritual thread that runs through the wonderful female voices of these countries. While many tracks have a distinctly pop bent they still retain links to the folk music of the various lands, mixing synthesizers with more traditional instrumentation. What stands out is the remarkable vocal range of many of the singers, exuding fragile beauty without Whitney Houston pyrotechnics.
