The Road To Wutumeiren

Influenced by various modes of futurism, “The Road To Wutumeiren” reflects the concept of “Asian Future Sounds” in my memory by reconnecting my roots in China.

The album depicted a cinematic landscape by infusing subtle and poetic dance beats with an abstract Eastern ambiance, featuring sonic sound design that interfered with multi-layered Asian-oriented folk instruments and a variety of vocal styles. The vocal parts feature the Mongol singer Daiqing Tana and French Jazz singer Lily Jung, and their voices have been re-defined to be part of the Asian abstract aura to take the audience on a timeless and spaceless trip where past, present, and future merges.

The mystery around this enigmatic project remains unsolved, only revealing an intense and subtle universe where songs tell stories like short movies. The lyric comprises and mixes Mongolian, Mandarin Chinese, and self-created languages that were designed to be melted within the aura of an Asian abstract atmosphere.

The featured track “The Road To Wutumeiren” was selected and released by China Universal Records titled “Opposite House Vol 1”, and this is a re-release version in the United States.

The Touch of The Surging Tide

“The Touch of The Surging Tide” is Yang Zhang’s latest project where she has teamed up with acclaimed artists from South India who have collaborated with 2x Academy Award winning composer, AR Rahman of “Slumdog Millionaire” fame. The album is being submitted to the 2024 Grammy Awards® in the Contemporary Instrumental category. The album merges the beauty of two cultures into one unique art form, where two extreme aesthetic tastes have been melted organically: it rejuvenates and redirects the evolution for future development. Yang Zhang’s new project pushes the limits of a dynamic range of categories by re-envisioning Indian music with a blend of futuristic touch: a wild array of cinematic ambiances with the remolded layer of electronic music, traversed through a Jazz taste.

By traversing the South Asian music lead by Bansuri, which blends with a broad range of vocals and dialects diversified from Asian to Africa, the album sets a wide-range of Indian melodic phrasing, laced with the unique nuances of traditional Indian flute improvisations influenced by Saga and Carnatic music that distinctly formalized an authentic and vocalized style of flute playing. The album encompasses the uniqueness, connectivity and compatibility of Indian folk tunes that can not only broaden the connection of Southern Asian music, but seamlessly lead the direction of its future evolution.

The project was consulted and supervised by 2x Grammy® winning composer Brent Fischer, and the featured flutist is Vijay Gopal, who is an A-grade artist of All India Radio, Chennai and an impaneled artist on the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).

The Indian recording sessions were produced and engineered by 3x Grammy accredited musician, Devan Ekambaram. 

To get the authentic sound of the South Asian Bansuri, renowned Bollywood engineer, Praveen Muralidhar was roped in to mix the flute tracks as well as master the album.
