Song of Silver Geese is the latest release from groundbreaking, experimental vocalist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and dancer Jen Shyu, whose critically acclaimed Sounds and Cries of the World was praised by The Nation and The New York Times as one of the best releases of the 2015.
Named a 2016 Doris Duke Artist and voted Rising Star Female Vocalist in the 2017 Downbeat Critics Poll, NPR extols her music as “intensely personal. Nothing sounds quite like it…[It] operates in some unpatrolled border zone, blurring lines between folk song and art song, the traditional and the avant-garde, Western and Eastern, between waking consciousness and dream logical. This is research and experience, absorbed and reimagined.” The Wall Street Journal praises, "Her voice, a wonder of technical control and unrestrained emotion, tells a story dotted with well-researched facts and wild poetic allusions. She claims both as her truths".
