I hope this is permitted. There are many Korean artists featured here singing R & B and Hip Hop. Perhaps it would be a nice change to listen to original ethnic music from our Asian friends as well. Though both songs are best heard live, these versions come with English subtitles and romaji (alphabetized Japanese). I hope one day black artists will cover their songs, too. The others are definitely doing so and capitalizing worldwide.
I added Gackt's version of Shima Uta.
1) Shima Uta (Island Song) by The Boom
2) Nada Sou Sou performed by Natsukawa Rimi
3) Shima Uta by Gackt
If you try to watch the Nada Sou Sou movie, please bring six boxes of tissues. The ending itself will break your heart into thousands of pieces. This song was written by Moriyama Ryoko (a folk and jazz singer) about the death of her beloved brother.
The Boom, Rimi , Gackt, and Ryoko are all from Okinawa.
