Staying true to the roots while having a firm grip on the present!

Cecile Corbel:A Breton Lady in Japanese Anime

Great news to Cecile Corbel fans! A soundtrack to “Kari-gurashi” will be release on April 7. Cecile composed the soundtrack for this anime.Previously, she reported this in her site:

A Breton Lady in Tokyo

After “Ponyo on the cliff by the sea” The Ghibli Studios just announced that they are working on a new movie, entitled “Karigurashi no Arrietty”, directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi.

Ghibli’s movies have always been a great source of inspiration for me, many of them are part of my favorite movies ever : “Spirited away”, “My neighbour Totoro” “Princess Mononoke”, “Kiki’s delivery service” and many more… There is a long list and I can definitely not choose which one is my favorite!
I’m very happy to share the news with you and to announce that I’m composing the soundtrack for this new movie.
This is a great honor and a very nice present for me to be part of this beautiful project, and I’m working on the music and songs composition since May 2009 with my partner and friend Simon Caby.
The movie will be released next summer 2010 in Japan.
The very first teaser will be broadcasted during the Christmas holidays in Japan including the main music theme “Arrietty’s song” (digital release in Japan on December 19 2009)
Official website available here :

For now, a lot of travelling between Paris and Tokyo, and a couple of jananese lessons ;)

I listened to the sample and it is beautiful that it will really spirit you away into the world of this movie. Cecile, Celticmusicfan is proud of you and is glad of this achievement. I also admire how the Japanese embrace Celtic music like no other. You can check the soundtrack here:
