1. MOCCA – Colours

Mocca called themselves as a Lovely story-telling pop band. Originally formed as a campus band in 1997, Mocca’s musical style is inspired by the retro sounds of the 70s, with influences of swing, bossa nova, Swedish pop, and jazz. With simple and beautiful songs, all in English, the band gained popularity in neighbors countries especially in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. Some of their songs are popular in South Korea too, and often used as the jingle for CFs. Mocca’s latest international show was a solo concert held in Seoul, South Korea on May 2009. Their songs are also used for several Korean movie & drama soundtracks, including Bandhobi, Personal Taste, and Flower Boy Ramyun Shop.


Here’s one of the songs from Mocca’s album Colours:

Endah N Rhesa is a couple of husband and wife who make musical project comprising acoustic guitar, bass and vocal. Endah Widiastuti (vocal, guitar) and Rhesa Aditya (bass) met each other in a rock band in early 2003. Shortly after the two left the band in 2004. From that time being, Endah and Rhesa started to play together in campus events, and the feedbacks toward their music were tremendously positive.

You can dance with their rock sounds music, and the lyrics of their songs contain positive messages that the future is bright. All songs are good and we think that you will like it. Please enjoy listening to their music.

올해 주목,「테스라는 울지 않는다」라고 하는 밴드의 퍼스트 앨범입니다.
록인 사운드가 춤출수 있는 노래나,미래는 어둡지 않다고 하는 메시지를 느끼는 노래가 많이 있습니다.
아인씨에게 소개하고 싶은 노래입니다.
꼭 들어봐 주세요.

This is a debut album of Ms. Miyuki Hatakeyama who is a singer song writer. Her gentle shiny voices will attract you very much. You will also enjoy feeling softness of her beautiful lyrics. All songs are lovely love songs. Nice songs to listen to when you enjoy your relaxing time in the afternoon of the weekend. Please enjoy listening to her music.

싱어·송 라이터, 하타케야마 미유키씨의 데뷔 앨범입니다.
상냥하게 윤기가 있는 목소리가 매력적입니다.
가사의 부드러운 울림을 느껴 주세요.
어느 노래도 근사한 러브 송입니다.
휴일의 오후에 방에서 편하게 들으면 맞는 노래라고 생각합니다.
부디 들어 보아 주세요.
