«Darei non so che cosa per essere un Colombo letterario, per scoprire un'America Romantica in qualche regione delle Indie Occidentali, del Nordafrica o dell'Oriente dove i comuni cristiani non amano andare!» scriveva Lafcadio Hearn. Sin dall'inizio, del resto, la vita lo aveva passo dopo passo indirizzato a questo scopo. Alla fine dell'Ottocento il Giappone, pur aperto ai commerci con l'Occidente da mezzo secolo, rimaneva un mistero, e Lafcadio Hearn, «nomade civilizzato», si imbarca per scrivere un libro-reportage sul paese. Nato in Grecia, cresciuto in Irlanda, Francia e Inghilterra, vissuto in America un ventennio, celebre per i pezzi di cronaca nera e di squisita, insolita erudizione, è la persona più adatta. Ha sapienza proteiforme e «partecipazione animica», il segreto del grande interprete..

A translator of Flaubert and Gautier, Lafcadio Hearn was the master of a gaudy and sometimes self-consciously decadent literary style, but he was also a tough-minded and keenly observant reporter, with an eye for the offbeat, the sensual, and occasionally the gruesome.

His fourth album, Eldorado (1989), ventured decidedly into the World Music genre - infusing O'Hearn's signature sound with rhythms and timbres drawn from disparate sources such as South America and the Middle East. As such, O'Hearn's arrangements accommodated a wider array of instrumentation - such as human singing and the solo violin (most notably on "Black Delilah".)

Patrick O'Hearn is an American multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, and recording artist. While his musical repertoire spans a diverse range of music, he is an acclaimed new age and ambient artist in his solo career. In 1985, he began his solo career releasing music, which he continues to this day. Eldorado (1989). This is a marvelous experiment in contemporary, Middle-Eastern-flavored electro-acoustic music. O'Hearn seemed to be embarking on a new direction in his musical career with this thoughtful yet sensuous blending of ancient and modern modes of expression. The album features two prominent Iranian artists - singer Shahla Sarshar and violinist Farid Farjad - though the music was obviously ahead of its time in the notoriously conservative world of adult alternative music…

China is a vast and populous country, moving rapidly on all fronts to prepare itself for life in the twenty-first century. Heir to a resplendent ancient culture, modern China is following a unique developmental path that evolves from this long and rich cultural tradition. Our understanding of the transformations in China today must be predicated upon an appreciation of this precious cultural legacy.
