Fu Lu Shou
Sample Song: なに (what)
I talked about Mavis a few posts back, and now I must mention her side project - Fu Lu Shou ^_^ Mavis Fan (TW) formed the group Fu Lu Shou with Kaneki Yoshinori (Japan) and now ex-bf Lawrence Chou (HK). The type of music they chose to make was "a mix of Chinese traditional music, India music, Nu -Jazz、Hip Hop、Breakbeat、Downtempo、Drum’n’Bass, Electronic, etc. etc." all thrown into one album. And I hear lounge jazz too. Yup.
Because Fu Lu Shou's album was so experimental & new for me, the first word that popped into my head when I heard the album was "weird!" I still feel that way sometimes, but the album has grown on me. I kinda like its funky weirdness now ^_^ Also, since the styles of the songs are all different, why not sing in many different languages too?! Japanese, English, Indian, French, Mandarin... Mavis can do it all!
"nani" is definitely my favorite track on the album, it's so weird & cute, especially when Mavis says "Watashi wa Mavis. Douzo yoroshiku onegaishimasu. Hajimemashite" in her super cute voice wahaha. ^_^
