For this soundtrack, Yoko Kanno teams up with Maaya Sakamoto (Escaflowne, RahXephon, Card Captor Sakura), Tsuneo Imahori (composer of Gungrave and Trigun) and Keishi Urata (Texhnolyze, Akira) to deliver a sumptuous, elegantly ethnic-sounding aural regale, with tribal and celtic pieces sprinkled in.
