Jade Ashtangini-Cherry Blossoms in Kyoto | In spirit and mind
Jade Ashtangini can sway your mood like Yiruma. A talented multi-instrumentalist, she takes control of the atmosphere with her machine of black and white this time. With every permutation and combination seemingly tried out, you would think that she is approaching a wall in compositions. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is her latest single, Cherry Blossoms in Kyoto.
A soft approach sets the scene. If you haven’t seen the visual of these trees blooming in the avenues of Kyoto, I recommend putting an image up and listening to this track. With ease and grace, she introduces us to each tree and the carpet of colour they form. Like a walk or stroll with a loved one, this is cherished moment after moment, as she plateaus into the tone of the song. For something that is so appealing and welcoming, she creates a welcoming tone that has an innate, sensitive rhythm to it. The building arpeggio that approaches brings a whole new dimension, an appreciation for the picturesque setting.
Jade Ashtangini has too many tracks to point out as brilliant. She is a composer who challenges her motives and ambitions, and always produces beautiful music as a balm to the soul. Songs like Life as it is and Being Joyful are some highlights in masterful arrangement work. Listen to this brilliant artist with this single here:
