Album Cover Wind Music 2017

Ukulele artist Daniel Ho collaborated with The Grasslands Ensemble from the Inner Mongolian prairies of Hulunbuirto create works like theare the Mongolic-speaking East Asian ethnic in Northeast China. Just a rich and delightful recording. Bravo!

Daniel Ho, Hawaiian ukulele master with more than 100 recordings, teams up on this gentle gem with Wu Judy Chin-tai, a Taiwanese music composer and producer, and the multi-talented Mongolian Grasslands Ensemble for an album that connects across cultural divides.

We may think of Hawai’i as American politically, however geographically and culturally it is Austronesian, and has an affinity to other Pacific Islanders and Taiwanese. Connecting through the medium of the Mandarin language, with co-producer Wu, Ho was able to bring together musicians from a diversity of cultures: Mongolian, Manchurian, Evenk, Daur, Russian and Han Chinese.
