Minimalist sound structures with a classical background meet a dark, velvety chanson voice with old folkloric echoes. Different cultures resonate with exotic instruments. It is sung in German, Catalan, Hebrew, French and in a kind of original language that merges into vowel-rich overtone singing.
Akampita Steiner's compositions and arrangements touch and hypnotize the listener and lead him to himself. Poetry settings by Else Lasker-Schüler and an excerpt from Chief Seattle's famous speech make the most important part of this CD lyrically and musically audible: love.
“This CD cannot be put into words. You have to hear her and experience the musician.” (Thomas B. Schumann, Edition Memoria)
