Breathing Taiwan is a visceral journey, an otherworldly tribute to the unheard stories of Taiwanese ancient culture and its fascinating history. Through the percussive sounds of native instruments such as the tatuk we are immediately transported to the indigenous landscapes of Taiwan. Once arrived, we can witness the echoes of deep pain yet a profound sense of pride and celebration through the aural rituals of ancestry. This music is as much a symbolic interpretation as it is an immersive experience into a world of wordless emotions that are altogether universal. credits released April 3, 2017 Renato Diz - piano & extended techniques Maria Quintanilla - voice Sayun Chang - percussion & voice Recorded by Tom Tedesco at Tedesco Studios in New York, USA.
