Work Of Sincerity And Purity
Imee Ooi, and her 20 years of creative efforts in Buddhist music and theatre. In my opinion, Imee is the premier Buddhist composer in the world, it's hard to find anybody even close to second place; she is in a class by herself in terms of the sincerity and purity of her work.
Imee has never promoted herself as a performer, she has always let her 50+ music CDs speak for her. She has also collaborated in KL on five stage musical presentations, working with her talented friends to bring successful Buddhist theatrical works forward. Year 2015, Imee took a big step, she created "The Sound of Wisdom", a solo concert/event that I had the privilege to attend at the Istana Budaya in KL. The show was so powerful and moving that images from the performance still come to mind months later. I am convinced that Imee's show needs wider viewing. I think if Imee's work can travel, there will be great benefit for people who see and hear her music. She is the real thing; blessed with a great talent.

Over 50,000,000 viewers on the internet have had their lives blessed by hearing the words of the Dharma and the Buddha through the means of Imee Ooi’s beautiful and healing music.
Imee Ooi is a living symbol of the Dharma for the layperson and monastic alike. A composer, director and singer serving our world with her divinely bestowed talent over nearly two decades.
Imee Ooi created her own recording labels and has reached levels beyond professional and artistic, where her mission is in complete adherence to the Dharma with an aim to benefit the earth, living beings and the environment. Supporting Imee Ooi’s concert to spread the Dharma to even farther spheres, the merit is untold.

Dramatic And Powerful
Imee brings an ethereal, modern sound to the great Buddhist chants and mantras. She has crafted a unique style that is evocative in touching the heart while inspiring its fundamental goodness. Her compositions are brilliantly pure and accessible to listeners of all backgrounds and ages. And the authenticity of the mantras and the original intentions they convey are deeply interwoven into superb musical arrangements. Imee’s stage performances are equally profound. Dramatic and powerful, they also express the great beauty and tranquility of deep compassion and the aspiration to be free from suffering.
84,000 palms together in gratitude for this work of devotion and the luminous compassion Imee shares through her gifts. May the sound that Imee has brought to us flourish and reach every ear yearning for comfort, beauty and freedom.

Fullest Of Time
Imee Ooi is gifted with deep appreciation of Eastern and Western musical masters. Her unswerving instinct in creating melodies for chanting ancient mantras and sutras is unique on this planet. She sings and composes with authority, the authority that cannot be learned at academy, but rather comes from the first-hand experience of Being / Creation, the authority that comes from experiencing first-hand the power of Bodhi, from ways of Buddha, in daily life.
As a very-experienced musician in contemporary Holy Spirit music over 40 years, I know what is real and what is just marketing. Imee Ooi only does the real stuff. If new music in the temples (in which she has done plenty) reaches to try to include those outside the walls, then new music outside those walls may reach into the temples, to give authority back to those who are not so sure why they keep going. What is a revolution of Metta? The best one. And now, this is the fullness of time.
