Parts to listen for

You can easily enjoy the wide variety of sounds thanks to the great beat. The lead female vocals and the chorus have transparency, the percussions are cozy, and the bass has an edgy feel.

Overlapping harp sounds are very smooth and transparent. The intricate sounds of wind chimes come out clearly.
Overlapping sound produced by the lead synthesizer and organ can be felt in the glissando.
The handclapping sounds as if you were right there. The number of the performers can be felt.
The tip of the stick can be heard striking the cymbal.
The rim click comes through sharply.
A humming UFO-like sound can be heard coming from multiple directions.
The rich, low bass of the tom-tom drum and the sound moving from right to left and left to right are apparent.
