After the review of Japanese Jazz vocalist last month, I’m back again in this audiophile post introducing Shanti, a talented vocalist and singer from Japan. The editor’s pick track for this month goes to her single ‘Wishing On A Star’, which was taken from Shanti’s Lullaby album that contained 11 English tracks and 1 Japanese tracks.
Shanti Snyder is a Japanese lyricist, singer, songwriter, and music TV host of mixed descent, based in Japan. She collaborated with Yoko Kanno and lend her voice for the original soundtrack titled ‘Sora’ in Escaflowne the Movie.
One thing i like about Shanti is her strong and beautiful voice. Her vocal is stable and well controlled in each song she sang. The track was downloaded from Hifitrack.com for only HKD$20 (estimate at MYR 12).
Wishing On A Star is a ballad song with Jazz instruments, one of my favorite Jazz selection so far. The song is available in lossless Studio Master 16/44.1 WAV format and i’m happy to add it to my audiophile collections.
