Discovery: Babi

Babi is a Japanese singer songwriter who has recently duetted with Pikmin for the Nintendo video game Pikmin 3 Deluxe. Her new track Pink Desert is a lively number that combines pop and classical elements to create something altogether unique.

I couldn’t help but smile when listening to Pink Desert and I think you might too. It’s such a bright and beautiful track with lively piano, brass and strings underpinning Babi’s delicate vocals. It’s a track I’ll keep coming back to, I’m sure.

As well as her placement on the Pikmin 3 soundtrack, Babi has built up a strong reputation in her native Japan and has recorded two albums.
