, , …,

The last war ∀ FOR ALL. EPIC❕

〈Moon〉 from 〈Turn A Gundam〉.

〈Moon〉 is a song from the animation Turn A Gundam (∀ Gundam) (∀(ターンエー)ガンダム) (1999).

It's written and sung by Yoko Kanno (菅野 洋子; 菅野よう子 ) (aka Gabriela Robin).

Title: Moon
Date: 1999
Singer: Gabriela Robin
Lyrics: Yoko Kanno
Music: Yoko Kanno
〈Moon〉 sung by Origa. (live performance for Turn-A Gundam Concert.)

Origa (b1970) is a Russian singer, works mostly in Japan. She's a long-time friend of Yoko Kanno. She performed many songs written by Yoko Kanno.

Live Performances

〈Moon〉 live, sung by Origa, conductor is Yoko Kanno.

This performance by Yoko at Cho-jiku-tanabata Sonic concert is significant. Because, the singer of many of Yoko's songs in past 2 decade are credited to a mysterious Gabriela Robin. Fans long suspected that Gabriela is Yoko, but Yoko always sidestepped it. (Yoko herself doesn't sing on stage) This is the first time she implicitly announced that she is Gabriela by sining a song she composed but is performed by “Gabriela”.

Lyrics

△1 E mi et le escontina
O plenitas o colindia

△2 Mi mortis sicle ha juus costro
Mawe poco entalius

△3 E mi et le di fenité
Gledis clant o pledistiant

△4 Enti lai viginsé lescayan
Mawe poco es vienticlo

△5 Taan ma taan la la la, la la lu
Plaute tai mi fai o gunema
(mundiana mundiana)

△6 Taan les tai la la la, la la lu
Morie taan mi fai es volta

△1 △2 △5 △6

Taan ma tai la la la, la la lu
Plaute taan mi fai o co …

Mi mo …
Tra taan …

As with many of Yoko Kanno's songs, the lyrics is meaningless vocalizations, not of any language.

Song 〈Moon's Cocoon〉from 〈∀ Gundam〉
Title: Moon's Cocoon (月の繭; Tsuki no Mayu)
Date: 1999
Singer: 奥井亜紀 (Aki Okui)
Lyrics: 井荻麟
Music: Yoko Kanno
山の端 月は満ち
息づくあなたの森
夏草浴びて眠る
愛おしい横顔
おぼろなこの星
大地に銀の涙
マユたる蛹たちは
七たび身をかえる
青にLalalu Lalalu染まる、恋しい繭玉
揚げ羽の蝶になる
やがて空を包む、無限のはね模様
いのちを輝かせよ

あの月あなたなら
悲しみを写さずに
世の揺らぎ見つめて
嘆かずに飛んでみる
風にLalalu Lalalu唄え、はねに月うつし
揚げ羽の蝶になる
揺らぐ夜に生まれ、銀河をわたるの蝶よ
命輝かせよ

青にLalalu Lalalu染まる、恋しい繭玉
揚げ羽の蝶になる
やがて空を包む、無限のはね模様
いのちを輝かせよ
