[CD] Sora ha marude / monkey majik

"monkey majik" is now the one of my favorite artists in Japan.
They sing the songs in both of Japanese and English.
I believe their English pronunciation is perfect (Sometimes, Japanese musicians can't pronounce English well in their songs :-|).
Why do I think so? Because the two vocalists are Canadians :). You can see their profile on Wikipedia.
It's very rare thing that the musician from foreign country start their work in Japan and make a success.

"Monkey Magic" was the theme song title for a tv program(drama) "Sai-yu-ki"(1978 wow, how old!) by Godiego.
Though I don't know they are inspired from the song title, it is the one of the reason that they can get to sing the theme song of the renewal version of "Sai-yu-ki".





"Sora ha marude" is the newest album by Monkey Majik.
The title song "Sora ha marude" is very beautiful song.
