Xu Fengxia: Black Lotos (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    


"Black Lotos is far more than a duo. Not only consists Lucas Niggli's acoustic layout of many parts, each of which could stand alone as an instrument: Xu Fengxia keeps switching between her two string instruments Guzheng and Sanxian and in parallel she uses her unbelievable voice. Thus the range of this music goes from soloist moments to the intimate dialogue up to almost orchestral abundance, from a short monologue in an interspace to a centipede ecstatic ride over an endlessly vast steppe. Chinese opera, Mongolian throat and overtone singing, Heavy Metal, traditional Chinese folk music, noise, contemporary Western music, African rhythms and jazz: ethnology, music history, tales, the moment of suspense, all combined in the Instant Composing of Niggli and Xu."-Intakt
