-Track Listing-

1. Gunjou no Tani

2. Gunjou no Tani (Acoustic Version)

3. Gunjou no Tani (Instrumental)

4. Gunjou no Tani (Acoustic Version ~ Instrumental)

This is alan’s 9th Japanese single released on February 4th, 2009. This single charted at the Oriocn charts at #30 selling 4,207 copies till now.

I have nothing to say bad about Gunjou no Tani at all. This ballad starts out alan’s vocals and boom we hear this amazing guitar music. The chorus has alan’s powerful vocals that I am always wowed by. The music arrangements are simply so well put with the beats and chimes. This track just blew me!

The acoustic version of Gunjou no Tani doesn’t have that strong music like the original as it is an acoustic version instead it starts with the traditional folk music we see in lot of alan’s work. Even though this is more slower, it’s still damn good!

After her debut single Ashita e no Sanka, this is another single from this newbie that I simply loved and cannot help but praise this young artists talent.

5. Hitotsu (Intrsumental)

6. Kimi Omou Sora (Instrumental)

7. Tokyo Mimei (Instrumental)

This is alan’s 2nd single. It charted #100 on the oricon charts selling 1,486 copies overall.

Hitotsu is a ballad just like her debut single Ashita e no Sanka except in this track we see less of traditional music but still of alan’s various vocal ranges which makes this track a beautiful one. Her vocals aren’t as powerful in this single but more soft and pleasant.

Kimi Omou Sora, one of the b-sides of this track are pleasant to listen as well. This track has more of modern music that her other tracks.

Tokyo Mimei was another b-side of this single that I found very nice to listen to. The music arrangements aren’t traditional but more like the Japanese ballads now but with alan’s vocal, I preferred this song out of all the b-sides.

sign, the last b-side of this single is in her native Tibetan language. This is pretty much of an instrumental with a mixture of modern and traditional music arrangements. This track is not bad at all even if its an instrumental with less of alan’s vocals.

Seriously for a new comer, alan’s got a huge talent. This single was as good as her debut.

Alan Dawa Dolma is a Chinese singer who is of Tibetan descent. This is alan’s first Japanese single released on November 21, 2007. This single came #69 on the oricon charts selling 2,062 copies in it’s first week.

Ashita e no Sanka is a ballad song with traditional Chinese music consisting of chimes and bells. The chorus in this track with alan’s high pitched vocals made me realize that she has a powerful voice which is something I definitely liked from this newcomer.  Her voice matches with every music arrangements.

Sakura Modern, the b-side of this single is good too. This song begins with traditional tibetan music. Another thing in this track that made me realize was along with alan’s powerful vocals, she also has amazing ranges in her vocals from deep to soft and then high.

With alan’s first debut single being this good along with her ability of perfectly controlled ranges of vocals, she is definitely making a big impact in the music industry.
