EastWest/Quantum Leap present VOICES OF THE EMPIRE, a brand-new product perfect for epic film/TV/game soundtracks. Featuring the raw, primal vocals of Uyanga Bold, VOICES OF THE EMPIRE will make the perfect companion product to the newly-released blockbuster Hollywood Choirs.

Uyanga Bold is a unique talent, melding the ethnic musical traditions of Bulgaria, Serbia, Mongolia, and beyond. She is a trained opera singer with perfect pitch, fluent in Russian, Mongolian, French, English, and German. It’s East meets West like you’ve never heard before. Her voice is beautiful, pure, otherworldly, haunting, unsettling, powerful, genuine in its ethnic flair and world class in its precision.

Uyanga Bold has taken the world by storm since she appeared on the scene, recently touring with Hans Zimmer with his live performances of the score from The Dark Knight. Forbes Magazine wrote “her voice harkens back to ancient civilizations” and she has been nominated as “Female Singer of the Year”. She has appeared internationally on television, radio, and in live performances, reaching over 25 million views across all platforms.

Press Quotes

"This is an easy one to recommend to ANY composer out there. The sounds are expertly recorded, the word/phrase/sound choices are incredibly useful, and the price is currently discounted. Two big thumbs up." - AskAudio

"One thing is for sure, other than the out-the-box phrases, which are stunning, you'll have to work with this library and discover where it sounds peachy. A good case in point being the key-switched word patch, which offered so much control and contrast that I spent a good amount of time both experimenting and playing to discover what it could do. nd in response to this, it is very capable indeed." - MusicTech Mag

"Featuring the remarkable talents of singer Uyanga Bold, EastWest's 14GB vocal library comprises 84 instruments across six categories serving up a wealth of solo female words, phrases and vowel sounds in a range of international styles. Uyanga's delivery and tone are evocative , stirring and elemental, the production is exquisite, and the flexible nature of the library makes it endlessly applicable to movie and game soundtracks in particular, but also music production." - Computer Music
