Album Review

Reviewed 2017-11-02 
Amazing one-of-a-kind album. Hawaiian musician Daniel Ho went to Inner Mongolia and found some astonishing players whom he infused with his own multi-faceted musicality; reminiscent of the Kurdish “Hawniyaz” another East-West fusion album of high virtuosity and great spirit.

No FCC's; Favorite tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8,9, 10 ,11, 13

**1—Between the Sky and Prairie –3:35 -- sweet and soulful instrumental of ukulele with violin and some human voice

**2 – Daur Love Song –3:22 – rhythmic love song – vocals, jaw harp, bird calls – captivating!

*3- Gray Sparrow's Heartache – 4:40– lovely and delicate vocals with Ho's piano underneath

*4—Rock Blossoms –2:48 – uptempo Barga folksong with local instruments

*5—Singing Magpie –1:51 – amazing instrumentation and vocals imitate magpie calls

6 –Jiang Mu Reverie –4:40—traditional throat singing with piano and native instruments

*7 –Manchurian Lullaby Melody—3:29 – lovely vocal with Ho's six string ukulele and local folk instruments

*8 –Golden Sunlight –3:30-- another gorgeous vocal with piano

*9 –Yaohur –2:32 – uptempo dance song with throat singing and native instruments

*10 –The Tragedy at Uhert Mountain and Huiteng Lake –2:10 – powerful

*11- Praise for Galloping Horses –3:14-- heavy duty throat singing with Daniel playing Hawaiian gourd percussion; galloping rhythm

12—Mongolian Drinking Song –2:23-- accompanied by Ho's ukulele

13 – Genghis Khan Eulogy – 6:37 – everyone chimes in for this one where they pull out all the stops for their great warrior (and bain of the Western world)
