4 島人ぬ宝 (オリジナル・カラオケ) | Shimanchu nu takara (Original Karaoke)   (instrumental)


Twenty minutes of music for 1200 yen is reasonable, especially if you really like the title track, “Shimanchu nu takara,” one of BEGIN’s most famous songs. The song is a medium-slow, meditative yet catchy reflection about life on an island. This single was worth it to me, as I have a special connection with that song. The other vocal track, “Nami” is a slower tempo lullaby that does not stand out on its own, but complements the title song. The third track is light-hearted village fare with some vocal parts but no particular melody line. And the fourth track is the karaoke track for “Shimanchu nu takara,” an excellent piece for karaoke buffs to practice to. This disc is definitely for BEGIN or “Shimanchu nu takara” fans.
