HAYA & DaiQing Tana

Wednesday, June 30, 2010
A while ago, after my last post, a friend of mine introduced me to another artist who are in the same line of music, not exactly the same but the kind of music that somehow satisfy your soul, so I look them up at YouTube and obviously I've taken a pleasing appeal with this people, so I want to share them to you guys.

HAYA is actually a Chinese band but not your usual type because they are more on traditional type of music with the innervation of modern musical instruments and they are more well known with their Mongolian type of music and with their lead singer Dai Qing Tana. These people are nonetheless one of the unique artist we have in Asia that still promotes the culture and tradition of how the music from ancestral past may have been and personally, when I'm listening to them, I feel like watching an old historical movie but to be more exact, the essence of the feeling that their music gives me are more likely a soulful songs.

Anyways, I want you guys to watch and listen to this MV of them, you can find their other videos at YouTube, it's entitled Qinghai Lake, it's my first favorite among their music and I hope you'll like it to.

Something for the Soul


When it comes to music, I don't stand in any religion or nationality as long as I feel that it's something that worth the ears to listen, i don't mind hearing it with my ears. I guess now your wondering why I've been saying such thing because my post today is something, I guess, would more be favored to our Buddhist brothers and sisters.

First thing first, I want to introduce you to Imee Ooi, is a Malaysian music producer, composer, arranger and vocalist who brings traditional Buddhist chants,mantras and dharanis (typically from the SanskritPaliTibetan or Mandarin languages) into sung versions with accompanying musical scores. She also is a classical pianist by training. (Source: Wikipedia)

I may not well understand what I'm hearing but listening to it is somehow soothing and makes me feel relax and solemn so I hope you guys appreciate this post and by the way, this post was actually been requested by someone who sent me a mail yesterday though I'm already planning to post it even before he requested me to, but still I appreciate his email, so anyways, enjoy listening.

Endless Violin with Taro Hakase

Monday, June 28, 2010









Just what I have promised before I give you one of Taro Hakase's great albums that I know you sure gonna love. It's all in violins and it's all by the cuddly-human-bear-like-violin-master, Mr. Taro Hakase (pardon me with the overly cute description but I do think that he looks like a bear with a curly hair, hehe :D).  







A little overview, Taro Hakase is a Japanese musician and composer who is widely known as that guy that played the violin of To Love You More in one of Celine Dion's concert it was also the very first time I've seen  and heard this guy in that concert when I have watched it at MTV. Married to an actress, this guy has been one of the most successful and known violinist around the world and I guess if you are a fan of Final Fantasy XII, this dude actually composed its soundtrack album.



He is actually a mere extraordinary solo violinist and aside from making his original pieces and playing violin instrumentals of musics, he is actually more elaborate in his Classical Violin playing but whether its Classical or New Age type of music, this guy is someone we should have our ears on.


If you want to buy the album, click this : Endless Violin

Saturday, June 19, 2010
Notice the new look of my blog? Hehe, but nothing really change much though only the colors and my banner, hehe. If only I could have someone who could make me a theme for free. Sigh. Sorry if I'm always indecisive, it's just that I'm not that satisfied with it yet. Anyway...

This past few days I was thinking of what to post but I got hook on reading that I forgot to post, haha, that was pretty carefree of me so I'm at your mercy. 




OstSo for tonight's post, I give you something warm tunes for your soul. It's from the original soundtrack of a heartwarming Japanese TV Series about family, love, & life, entitled One Liter Of Tears, it has a movie actually but I recommend that you watch the TV Series instead. All the instrumental pieces are played & performed by Susumu Ueda. I hope you enjoy listening to this post. Ciao!

Helene Grimaud's Bach


This will be my very first post about her but my feelings now about this person is overwhelming. I only heard about her from a friend's blog and I'm glad I did read it because hearing her music was really something.

As I was getting to know her through her music I had become more attach listening to her Bach's, I don't know how to express this feeling but it was really indeed overwhelming. I like it how it started discreetly, how it sounded so romantically but what confuse me more is how it made me want to cry, a feeling rather I can't explain. I'm seriously at lost of words to describe that very sensation upon hearing this piece but very much glad to know such artist. Now I'm having a new person to admire.

Kotaro Oshio | Nature Spirit

Friday, June 11, 2010
Hey guys, I guess It's now June isn't it...hehe :) But before anything else, I want to apologize for some or rather most of my medias that doesn't work, I'm having a hard time now with regards of my storage file bandwidth and I'm quite busy this past few days looking for a new one and thankfully I did find one though it was really dragging but nonetheless it is better than not having one. I'm a bit disappointed with the recent problem because I know I've been causing a lot of inconvenience with my visitors here that's why I'm still looking for more file hosting sites that I can conveniently use for this blog so that I wouldn't have a problem anymore whether some of medias are working or not, so I'm really sorry for the inconvenience...I hope you don't mind mailing or contacting me if this kind of problem is happening again. AND ONE THING ALSO, though, if my medias doesn't work you can still download the file as seen in my Download Direction. So even though this blog has many flaws I hope you keep on subscribing and visit it. :D



Now, for today's post I want to introduce you guys to Kotaro Oshio, an acoustic guitarist from the country of, of course, Japan. I'm kind of fond of this guy in many ways by the way and that is because he really isn't that type of artist that focuses on one genre, hearing him play in jazz, classic, new age, and even instrumental version of some old songs, this guy is really nerve-wracking, in a good way of course, not to mention his techniques in playing guitar is totally something you'll be amaze about, I guess I wouldn't mention it all but to describe this guy in one word is, Amazing!


So I present you guys one of his album, Nature Spirit, the album is full of fresh tracks that I'm sure you'll love also an instrumental version of one of my favorite song of Beatles, In My Life. If you want to download the full album, you can refer to Shiho's site, New Age Paradise or simply CLICK ME~ So enjoy listening :D

Jukebox Hits: Old Songs [Part I]

Sunday, June 6, 2010


This week, all I've been listening to are old classic songs of ABBA, Carpenters, Bread, Nat King Cole & etc. I just don't know why but hearing them all over again is somehow relaxing. Indeed, it was my parents who influenced me to love songs such as this but nonetheless it is not something I regret because I love them more than the modern songs that we have now but I'm not saying that I don't like those modern songs it's just that I prefer old songs than modern ones. 





Anyway, I give you some of my personal favorite of Eric Clapton, Carpenters, & B.J. Thomas' songs that  I love played in instrumentals , performed by Sungha Jung, if you want to hear more from him, you can look him up at You Tube. I decided that I will post old classic songs such as this every now and then to add with my blog category so watch out for more. I hope this teaser post would make you want for more...hehe (^_^) Enjoy listening!
