NOTE: Counting down to the end on WordPress. Please see this post and future posts at my new home: 357 Magnum over on Blogspot. And you should update any links. (Posts are in both places right now. That is a small, but not meaningless bit of work on my part, so it will continue for a VERY short time.)

Olga Vitalievna Yakovleva (Ольга Витальевна Яковлева), better known by her stage-name Origa, was born in the old Soviet Union, in Novosibirsk Oblast, an area of southwestern Siberia. She made a name for herself working mostly in Japan. Sadly she died of lung cancer at the age of 44 in 2015. I think she had a haunting voice, and I quite like her work. Most of it anyway.

This song is “Aurora” by Origa from the 2005 album Aurora.
