Yang Zhang "The Touch Of Surging Tide"

2023 Global Music Awards 2x Gold medal winner Yang Zhang presents her winning album "The Touch Of Surging Tide", which has been submitted in the contemporary instrumental category at the 66th GRAMMY Awards.

About the album: Behind the submission, is her timeless art concept that blurs the boundary crossing contemporary instrumental, cinematic ambience, the architecture built upon futuristic electronic, re-envisioned Indian music, and interfered with the Jazz taste.

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. By traversing the South Asian music led by Bansuri, which blends with a broad range of vocals and dialects diversified from Asia 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 co-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.
