Featured ASHA Artist – Sang Ding Duo Jie “Sunny”

Sang Ding Duo Jie, or as we’ve nicknamed him, “Sunny”, is from Yushu, China, a prefecture of Tibet, high in the Himalayas… His extraordinary voice can be heard in the opening cut on our latest album Asha… He is also the featured vocalist on track 11 Four Simple Joys

We met Sunny while in Yushu recording children, many of whom had been orphaned by an earthquake in 2008… He was recommended to us by one of the music instructors who helped us get into that very sensitive region of China through the educational ministry, and the Feng Ma Youth Theater, a China-based non-profit…

Sang Ding Duo Jie is a gifted vocalist, and a living embodiment of his particular style of traditional singing, which over the centuries has become extremely rare… He travels the countryside giving exhibition performances, and donates much of his time and energy to the children of Yushu… We think Sunny is a wonderful grassroots model for our non-profit AO Foundation International, and AO Music’s vision for being the change…kids first
