Gabriela Robin has been credited with songwriting and performing credits on work by 菅野よう子 (Yoko Kanno) and some related artists. Gabriela Robin may or may not be a pseudonym for Kanno herself, but this has not been confirmed either way.
Gabriela Robin is a singer and lyricist, credited for lyrics and vocals on many songs composed and arranged by Yoko Kanno for Japanese anime.
She has long been rumored to be Kanno herself, writing and singing under a pseudonym. Robin stated in a print interview that she was going to sing in front of an audience for the first time at Kanno's Cho-jiku-tanabata Sonic concert held on July 7 2009. At the end of the concert, Kanno, after conducting a long symphonic medley performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic, turned to the audience and sang 'Moon' from Turn A Gundam, which is attributed to Robin. This event is thought to be Kanno's admission that she is and always has been Robin, but Kanno has still not said so explicitly.
Several anime series with soundtracks featuring performances and/or lyrics by Robin include Cowboy Bebop, Jin-Roh, Macross Frontier, Macross Plus, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Please Save My Earth, The Vision of Escaflowne, Earth Girl Arjuna, Turn A Gundam, Wolf's Rain, Genesis of Aquarion and its sequel Aquarion Evol.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
