Here is the Wiki I found, best I could do for Crediting the author.

~~~~~~~~~~~"Sakura Sakura" (%u3055%u304F%u3089 %u3055%u304F%u3089, "Sakura Sakura"?), also known as "Sakura", is a traditional Japanese folk song depicting spring, the season of cherry blossom. Contrary to popular belief, the song did not originate from ancient times (as in, not from the Heian period or prior). It was first composed during the Edo period for children learning to play the koto. Originally, the lyrics "Blooming cherry blossoms" were attached to the melody. The song has been popular since the Meiji period, and the lyrics in their present form were attached then. It is often sung in international settings as a song representative of Japan. Throughout the ages there have been many rearrangements of the song, but Michio Miyagi's rendition is often regarded to be the best of them all. 'Dream of the Cherry Blossoms' by Keiko Abe, a Japanese virtuoso percussionist, is a 5 minute long piece for marimba based on an improvisation on the tune of 'Sakura sakura', and has become one of the most played pieces in the marimba repertoire.~~~~~~~~

Now my comment. This song has brought me to tears. Especially the Lyrics. Sounds so peaceful to me. So i decided to make my own version. A version that included my own voice to the song.

Yate Mimashou = Let's do it!

At the end you'll hear me recite a Haiku in japanese.

Japanese Cherry blossoms
are as refined
as a beausiful woman

Please check out my website for more of my music. Rate them there too. I'll try and put them up here, but I don't get alot of reviews so I just say screw it.

Oh this piece is probably good for one of those actiony Asian flash clips or games as the music is a bit repetative. Sorry about that.


"Not Bad"

Hey I was looking for a male voice for a voice over for a animation I am making. He sings J Rock, would you be interested in making a song for it, or a voice over? (pleading look)

Usiema responds:

I could do it, but my mic sucks. pretty old universal type from 1998. =p

I'll help if you really want me too... then here's my Email. Dasaki89@yahoo.com

you'll need to give me a small script that I may look at. Also if I can I'll make a few tracks, or at least try to make one.
