[English Translation]
Japanese singer-songwriter minakumari's third studio album, released about 3 years after the last album "Rang." Welcoming fellow musicians including U-zhaan, the tabla player who often appears on her works, mabanua, the multiple musician who has recently become much sought-after also as a producer, and Hirotaka Shimizu, a guitarist who is also known for his participation in the Cornelius Group, this album is basically built around folktronica-flavored sound, with the tones and rhythms produced by various instruments and multiple choruses placed in three dimensions. minakumari's coquettish singing is perfectly blended into the sound. Lying at the core of the refined ensemble, constructed with the minified number of tones, is of course the sitar she plays. However, with the low-key ethnic flavor, one can enjoy this album as sophisticated pop.
