Morita Doji - Mother Sky

Morita Doji was a Japanese singer active throughout the 70's-80's.
Doji began her musical career in the midst of academic struggles, and with the larger impact and influence from the death of a close friend -- she released her first solo album in 1975.

The first time hearing her 1976 follow-up, '
Mother Sky', I was entranced by her voice: natural, nothing forced - just really beautiful/melancholy stuff. Whether whispers or wails, everything is distinct and resonated, floating between the backing strings.

Absolute recommendation.

Mother Sky
mind the graves
