Amelia Cuni - Sings Dhrupad

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, May 22, 2013 Under
"Amelia Cuni is one of the very few Westerners to have mastered the complexities of Indian vocal music...It is all more remarkable that she sings dhrupad, a style which is usually the exclusive province of men...Cuni is an excellent performer who explores the subtle nuance of each raga in extended alap sections and metered compositions. Her acute rhythmic control and fine sense of intonation lead many inspired, beautiful, and surprising musical moments." - Songlines
"A clear, and typically multicultural, highlight was a captivating conceptual setting of Indian dhrupad vocalizing by Italian Amelia Cuni, in collusion with electronic manipulation by Werner Durand and elaborate projections by Uli Sigg...alternately sensual, bold, and contemplative." - Los Angeles Times

"This is 'crossover' at its most fruitful, in which irregular dance rhythms come tumbling out against the nasal yet dusky singing of the Italian-born Cuni, whose voice makes a good case for reincarnation." - The Times
