The year is 1983 when Zhou Peng was born into the family of a Mongolian mother and a Chinese father. Now, 35 years later, you can find her under her artistic name - Sa DingDing (薩頂頂) along with her 6 published albums. Don't we always read how talented from a young age was a certain artist? She doesn't show talent but great interest, skills, and dedication to singing, playing instruments and learning many languages. As a result, she now uses effortlessly Tibetian, Sanskrit, Mandarin and Lagu. Along with these languages, she uses in her songs a language of her own (similar to gloсsolalia). That way she hopes to touch the heart of her listener without relying on actual words or story. To the list of her neverending skills, we can add also the traditional instruments guzheng and morin khuur.
Somewhere far in the distance, a faint sound can be heard. Is it Chinese? Is the melody Indian or Mongolian? Or even from the mystical Tibet? We settle, close our eyes and fall into the heavenly symphony of various cultures combined in a masterpiece. There is a soft female voice now but the language is unknown and unclear to me. Somehow tho, I understand it and follow the emotion it brings. Can you hear it?
