“Year Of The Funky” is the titletrack and first single of the upcoming new full-length by Bei Bei (荷蓓蓓) & Shawn Lee. After their debut collaborative album “Into The Wind” (released on Ubiquity Records in 2010), the Chinese guzheng virtuoso / composer and the prolific multi-instrumentalist / producer join forces again on 12 new tracks.
“Year Of The Funky” marries a unique blend of ancient tradition with studio trickery. Eschewing all notions of superficial “Asian/Fusion”, this uplifting, genre-bending, and sophisticated sound brings together both East & West with musical aplomb.
