This is a variation on this thread. But we're dealing with OPs, EDs and insert songs from anime. I'm also interested in non-anime music that relates to my favorite anime songs... We can just discuss anime music in general, too, if you'd like.

I thought of this because Battie mentioned that she really loved the OP song from Agito. But she didn't seem to know who Dead Can Dance were, so I went a little wild with links and stuff....

If you liked KOKIA's OP song "Chouwa" from Agito, you might also like....

> Lodoss War TV OP - a Yoko Kanno tune sung by Maya Sakamoto (that's Haruhi from Ouran!)
> NeoRanga OP - not as good but still it's got some of that vibe... sounds a bit like "Japanese Survivor" though...
> Scrapped Princess ED - I really like this one... same girls who sang the OP/ED for Azumanga Daioh. Not as "native" or "medieval" as the Agito OP, though. More dreamy, as you might expect.
> Other music videos by KOKIA
> KOKIA's vocals remind me a bit of Origa, a Russian singer working in Japan who does a lot of anime music. Here's ORIGA's ED song for Fantastic Children, set to visuals from Final Fantasy for some reason... Origa also works a lot with Yoko Kanno (songs from GitS S.A.C. for example). A bunch of Origa stuff.
> The Agito OP sounds like it's been influenced by Bulgarian folk music and Finnish Karelian folk music. Yoko Kanno played around with that stuff while working on the Macross Plus soundtrack and the Escaflowne soundtrack, too, among others.
> Bulgarian women doing a folk song.
> Varttinna, my favorite Finnish/Karelian folk group.
