Pop group Syakari will be marking their 10th anniversary with their very first best of album titled “10th anniversary BEST~Boku to Iu Na no Chizu~.” The 15-track album will be released on 10/22/08 and retail for ¥2,800.
Included is their single (above YouTube clip) “Taiyou no Hito” and the best of album spans their album releases from 1999’s “Kotoba no Kawari ni” to 2007’s “Uta Yabira”—they’ve released six albums to date.
Trivia: Syakari’s lead vocalist, Chiaki (from Chatan), got her start singing chorus for DIAMANTES, drummer/guitarist/sanshin/percussionist Kannari (Kazunari Uechi) started out with Rinken Band, and guitarist Masaru is often featured on albums from other artists. The name Syakari is a rearranged version of the area of Chatan that Chiaki is from, Jagaru, known for their eisaa.
