Actually,Lisa uses a "language grown by itself" as she puts it. It's not a real language- she improvises them...Yet it sounds like Greek or Turkish sometimes, doesn't it?:)

Take care

I _am_ Turkish and have been listening to her for 15 years... believe me it does NOT sound like Turkish at all--ever...

What type/category of music is Lisa Gerrards music considerred?

Lisa Gerrard creates her own language, called glossolalia, language used by autists, for her it's a way not to be limited by words, in which she feels confined. As for her category, it's quite hard to classify her, since she has many influences, each album is different from the previous one or the following one. Still, she's a great artist.

I really love Lisa Gerrard. Her voice is something else. Yet i cannot help it missing her with 'Dead can dance'. Maybe i gotta accept the fact DCD is history and will not return anymore. But, i haven't heard 'Immortal memory yet'. An album with fantastic symphonies (?)
I'm curious.

Bought Lisa's 'A thousand roads', and yes.....finally i can find peace with the fact that DCD is over. The album is brilliant, quite spiritual too. It's a prayer for and to the american native - the indians and somehow a prayer for western civilisation that we can learn from them. However, the music is deep and warm. It really comforts me. Perfect.

Now for the last time some' bout Lisa.
I find her voice incredible. Yet been to her concert recently and it really looks like she's not walking on planet Earth anymore.....the way she behaves, the way she looks, and even though her voice is one of a kind it's definitly to hear in the way she sings. For example the song 'The wind that shakes the Barley' is in her original way of singing (in Dead can dance) a song of meditation or silence but brought with great power. With her performance this was one of the songs she sung with bit dullness (orso).
Het studiorecordings nevertheless sound very smooth and are brought with a cloud to bring you to the places you'd like to go in mind. On stage it looks like Lisa's on her own cloud.

I just couldn't believe the disappointment i had of her concert that i went to see her for the second time in november. And this one was extremely much much better than the last one. This time it was that extreme perfect, beyond the depths of beauty i'd almost say. And i think i was not the only one with this experience. And all because of Lisa's (more than) extraordinary voice that she uses on a way that it lamed me in the chair: it goes through body and soul.
The way her musical career developed (with Dead Can Dance), in gothic and dark wave,
(mid-)eastern to indian, classical and spiritual, firmed music with quite diversity. The reflection of that was clear seeing the audience: gothics, metalheads, high educateds, managers, students, young (16-y-olds) to old (60-y-olds). I guess i have found peace with the split of DCD.
