Studio Ghibli is known the world over for their animated films, and with good reason! They may not quite be as wealth as Disney, but there’s no doubt that they have created many masterpieces that will withstand the test of time. They’ve also created numerous lovely, memorable soundtracks for their movies — and those songs have been perennial favorites for musicians seeking for inspiration for many years.
A quick look around YouTube will reveal too many covers to count, with everything from metal to pop to orchestral. With so many out there, it can be difficult to stand out — and yet many musicians manage to make covers that do just that and blow us away! Today, we have one such pair, Nicholas Yee and Shawn Gan, a cellist and classical guitarist, respectively, who add a sophisticated, sublime edge to some of Ghibli’s most well-known and beloved songs.
