Emme is the latest singer to be dubbed as a Japanese world music artist. She has a certain Japanese way of singing, although is still fairly western pop sounding at times. She is accompanied by a range of instruments including Japanese shakuhachi, koto and shamisen, plus Javanese gamelan and other east Asian instuments, African percussion, sitars, s well as guitars, bass, trombones, flutes and western percussion. A big production, brimming with ideas and enthusiasm, but could perhaps have benefited from a more simple approach at times. Nevertheless, this is a creative and imaginative work, deserving of the praise it has been receiving.
