"3 Kingdoms" by DaMaDa (World Artist from San Francisco, CA)

The talented group, DaMaDa, release their excellent Asian/World music CD, "3 Kingdoms." This album is comprised of songs featuring the styles of Chinese Folk/Pop music and offers the vocal talents of Luo Danna who is accompanied by free style Jazz guitarist, Marc Schmitz, and drummer, Dave Mihaly. Danna sings with a soft and delicate clarity as she easily hits the upper register notes. The superb talents of Schmitz and Mihaly and their free style performances complement Danna's wonderful voice. Starting the CD, the song, "Good Morning Miao Mountain," is uplifting as it has a bouncy beat and grooves with a fun loving vibe. Another song, "Wan Wan De Yue Liang," is a softer song and has expressive lyrics which Danna sings with emotive sensitivity. This group also explores the musical styles of Middle Eastern intonation as you will hear on the song, "Sun Drum." Fans of Asian World music will find the terrific album, "3 Kingdoms," overflowing with a wonderful collection of Chinese Folk/Pop music.
