“Songs of Memory is a rare jewel, a book to be cherished, and a stimulus for preserving the rich musical traditions and ceremonies of the Golden Triangle ethnic groups. Victoria Vorreiter is the best kind of explorer, someone who is curious, committed, and compassionate, a woman who sits around village fires with people who trust her enough to share their music, and by doing so, share their cultural treasures.
Dig into this book, admire Vorreiter’s hundreds of glorious photos, and become transported by the 78-minute compilation of celebratory songs, sacred chants, and instrumental music that are an essential part of the souls of these exceptional people. She has come to the scene with an open heart and sensitive eye to reveal these touching, often threatened, musical wonders to you. Victoria is special and I hope the universe recognizes that.”
