Emy Tseng is a singer, born in Taiwan and living now in Washington DC.
Her debut album is full of Brazilian jazz.
“I just love Brazilian music. The atmosphere, the rhythms, the harmonies, they really have touched me,” Tseng says.
I have to say this report felt racist to me–why is it so hard to believe that a non-Brazilian singer would sing Brazilian music? Because she’s Taiwanese? Get over it! She’s an artist and that’s what artists do–explore and appreciate all forms of their art.
Emy Tseng has a very smooth sound. To my untrained ear, I would not have known she was not Brazilian. Compliments to Emy as she esteems the Brazilian sound.
She sounds very good and her choice of songs is nothing less than prophetic. It’s easy to love her music because she selects only the very best in Brazilian melodies and lyrics. I would like to see a live performance of these songs by this particular artist. Very very good, and relaxing .
Emy!!!! Você é o máximo, garota!!!! Parabéns!!! Que voz deliciosa!!!
