ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Blues in ... Asia" contains 19 tracks from all over the region - from Japan to Indonesia, from Singapore to China, from Vietnam to India, and most countries and territories in between! Of course, you'll hear traditional American blues in English, like "Sweet Home Chicago" and "Walking the Dog", but also be ready for some cool Asian interpretations of the Blues, sung in Indonesian ("Ilusi"), Mandarin ("Spring Weather" and "Tianmi Beijing"), and even Japanese ("Yakitori Boogie"). Also, you're sure to be captivated by the sounds of some unique Asian instruments interpreting the blues! Enjoy!!

*** CHARITY ASPECT ***

Paul Hammerstein

Kudos for putting together such a great CD - wow!
I've been travelling around Asia for 20 years, and have heard plenty of great blues bands that are as good as those that I've heard in the US and Europe. What a surprise to see that someone has made a compilation CD - high quality sound, killer tunes. Fun to listen to the Blues in Mandarin and other languages as well!! Well done!!
