Sa Dingding represents a modern China, she beautifully combines rhythms of different Asian regions including Tibet and Mongolia with Western electronica and influences of classical and soul. The result is a richly layered tapestry of the ethereal, escapist, eclectic and simply unforgettable.
With lyrics in Mandarin, Tibetan, Sanskrit, and a unique language the artist came up with herself, Sa Dingding's new album Alive will come as a fresh breeze to the World Music scene.
Her Beautiful and mysterious voice is supported by her instrument the "zheng" creating a traditional sound that fits together seamlessly with the modern synth and electronica that are the foundation of the album.
"Sa Dingding deserves to be the first Chinese singer-songwriter to become a celebrity in the west." The Guardian
