A beautiful mixture of sort of a poem (word spoken by Junko Yanagida, with a very soft voice), accompanied by a flute and rhythmic drums. The first part of the text is spoken in Japanese (I don't understand a word, but luckily there's an English translation in the comments section). The second part is spoken in English and even gets a little symphonic touch (more instruments and a choir in the background), very nice...
If you like the tune, make sure to also checkout this other version, which puts more emphasis on the violins, IMHO.
A fine fiddling tune by Phil Newton (violin) and Tom Joad (guitar) called "High-Flyer Stomp".
And now for something completely different — progressive alt-rock by Arthur Yoria.
