Music Monday – Senbonzakura

In this edition of Music Monday, lets explore the world of Vocaloid. I am sure most of you are familiar with Miku and her beautiful songs, and if you haven’t, I’d recommend you go through our Vocaloid tag.

The song Senbonzakura was released in 2011 and describes Japan during the Meiji period. However it has contains rather dark themes, mentioning guillotines and ICBM. On the other side, the catchy tunes make it one of the most memorable Miku songs.

The version I would like to show you today, is a violin cover by Lindsey Stirling. This cover is one of the best Senbonzakura covers I’ve heard, and the visuals make it that much better, so what better place to share my love for this great piece then on anime@UTS’ weekly Music Monday.
