<Introduction of this album “Poetry Meet Song”>
Among all art forms, poems and folk music share some characters. In literature, poems are the shortest but also the deepest.
In music, folk music intentionally tries to simplify in skills and instruments, but its depth lies in its calm thoughts. Thanks
Shuntaro Tanikawa (Japanese poet), Beidao, Xichuan and Tianyuan(Chinese poets) for leaving their touching poems to my
composing and singing. This album is titled Poetry Meets Songs, a precious fate and a destined rendezvous.
In the summer two years ago, I finished my first original music album “Anna’s Patio”. It was my original, innocent and
immature, but still it’s loved by many. My sincere thanks to you all. In this new album I begin to really learn how to understand and polish my music, with a process becoming clearer in my eyes, as well as my heart.
My special thanks to the celebrated Japanese super realist painter Mr. Noda Hiroshi, who is in charge of my album cover’s
photography. I met Mr. Noda in Tokyo and he took this picture as a reference to paint my portrait. Thank him for giving me
this original picture as my album’s cover. I am waiting for his completion of the portrait in his studio located in the beautiful and serene Hokkaido.
