"A Moving Sound is one of the most original outfits working in the world music arena today"
- Tom Pryor, National Geographic On Line World Music
In A Moving Sound’s music, traditional Taiwanese, Chinese and neighboring Asian music forms are fused in new original song compositions. Instruments such as the Chinese erhu (a vertically held, bowed instrument), the zhong ruan (Chinese guitar), and the transcendent vocals and dance of lead singer Mia Hsieh, transport listeners on a journey that Global Rhythm magazine describes as “...delicately balanced between many worlds…an entryway to Eastern music and artful expression of the human condition."
A Moving Sound has performed in twenty countries and has been featured on “The Discovery Channel”, NPR’s “All Things Considered”, BBC Radio 3 and PRI. Their approach is to be holistic – their ethnicity is steeped in art, spirituality, social awareness, and a universal love of humanity creating, what Tom Pryor of National Geographic World Music describes as, “one of the most original outfits working in the world music arena today".
