ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
* Once in a generation a singing talent of such extraordinary charm appears on the international music scene that the world pauses to listen. From the paddy fields of China to the concert halls of the world comes the magic voice of Katusha Tsui to delight and entertain.

* BIG SKY is proud to present Katusha's debut album, The Homecoming.

* Katusha comes from a small family in Southern China, and at an early age attracted the attention of her first voice coach, Zhang Ru Jun, who introduced her to the Western vocal repertoire. She attended the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts, and after winning a Sir Edward Youde Fund Scholarship she studied Opera at the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

* The Homecoming was recorded in Hong Kong and London and features 14 popular folk songs of China. Katusha reaches down deep into her soul in this musical journey to bring these ancient melodies to life. The unique arrangements are by Noel Quinlan, who has sensitively combined these unforgettable melodies with many folk styles from around the world, bringing a truly international feeling to the production.

* BIG SKY was created to bring together music and art from around the world. It is dedicated to projects which will build bridges toward global understanding.

Ian (UK)

A great CD, Classic folk songs with a contemporary beat.
A great CD. Katusha has a great, pure voice that is clear, beautiful and haunting on these songs, she has chosen. The rhythmic, backing music, classic Noel Quinlan, is a perfect mix for Katusha’s voice and folk songs to give these tracks a modern twist with great beats and rhythms that make it a pleasure to listen too, I am sure you will love it too. I love Rainbow Girl, The Drums of Feng Yang (the bass), and the version of Shalee is pukka. Jasmine almost sounds like Puccini. Far Away sounds modern and mystical. In fact, not one bad track. Do yourselves a favour and listen to it. Great work guys, Katusha you must be very proud and pleased with this. I look forward to your next album.

I would also like to say CD baby were excellent too, CD arrived from the states in 4 days, well packed. Great service, great choice of music too. Well done guys keep it up.
