DaWangGang

Avantgarde Singer-Songwriter from China – an archaic trip through Asian soundscapes

Philosophical stories and poems about animals, children or wizards, embedded in musical textures from guitar, horse-head-fiddle, ghijek, throat-singing, jaw harp, drums, percussion and samples, combined and played in ever-new variations. A trip through Chinese and central-Asian folklore, experimental and nature-adapted soundscapes, archaic sound of wideness, rhythmic trance, expressive-energetic emotions and stories full of fantasy, wisdom and depth.
