Bibo no Aozora

A devastatingly beautiful piece of Chopin-esque piano balladry, "Bibo no Aozora" remains one of the most compelling and emotional tracks in consummate musical Renaissance man Ryuichi Sakamoto's extensive catalogue, and was most recently used during the closing credits for the complex cross-cultural flick "Babel". Check out a live performance of this elegant ballad captured during Sakamoto's 1996 "Trio" world tour, with able support from violinist Everton Nelson and cellist Jaques Morelenbaum.
