I started listening to Mai Kudo about a week ago. I had never heard of her before that. Apparently she performed under the name Ruppina before her recent album Maiself (which I should be getting any day now). I managed to download some Ruppina songs the other day and listened to them in my MP3-player today as I was walking into town to vote (election in Sweden). Her voice is so nice and the songs are very good and easy listening. I’m glad to have found a new (new for me) artist that I like. I think I’m going to get her Ruppina BEST album, which is pretty cheap for a Japanese CD+DVD album.
I’ll update this post with more info later. I’m so tired right now
Click the picture. She’s very pretty. I’m going to update my gallery script to give bigger thumbnails in the blog… tomorrow.. .zzzzzzz
update: I think I’ll put one or two MP3s here to show how Ruppina sounds. I’ll have to pick some favourites first. I’ve been in meetings all day, so I haven’t had time to listen to all the songs yet
update: now it’s time for bed again, but I haven’t forgotten. Here are some Ruppina songs:
