Tsukamori no Taiju by Joe Hisaishi from the album “My Neighbor Totoro” 2004 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org)
Allow me to introduce you guys to one of my favorite movie composers, Joe Hisaishi. He has worked on the scores of many popular Studio Ghibli films such as Spirited Away and Kiki’s Delivery Service. This piece is from My Neighbor Totoro, and it’s absolutely incredible! The piece starts with a stringed instrument, and then a koto starts to play. The best part of the song is the chorus, which will leave you speechless. You can really feel the love and power that was put into the piece, and it will leave you beaming from ear to ear. Also, if you haven’t already, check out the film, you won’t be disappointed! I’d love to hear what you guys think of this piece in the comment’s section below. Also, tell me your favorite Studio Ghibli film.
Happy Listening 😀
