ORIGA (Орига) (also known as Olga Vitalyevna Yakovleva (Ольга Витальевна Яковлева), born October 12, 1970 in Novosibirsk, Russia) is a Russian singer and vocalist.

After graduating from music school in 1990, she took an opportunity to visit Japan in 1991 and finally contracted with the ROAD&SKY Organization in 1993. Origa has since participated in several projects of various artists in addition to the Radio Japan Series and being part of the chorus for Kobe earthquake disaster charity single.

ORIGA has as of 2005 released seven solo albums, two mini-albums, and 3 singles. She gained popularity outside of Japan and Russia with the release of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and the subsequent original soundtrack, written by long-time friend and composer Yoko Kanno, hosting the theme song “Inner Universe” (featuring boy soprano Benedict Delmaestro). (Origa first performed with Kanno for the ∀ Gundam, singing Gabriela Robin’s “Moon” with the Gey’s AX chorus.) An additional opening theme song from Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG (the second season of the popular anime series), “rise”, also gained acclaim. She also performed the opening theme, “Player”, to the film of the series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Solid state Society, in 2007.

In 2005, ORIGA performed songs for the anime series Fantastic Children, most notably the ending theme “Mizu no Madoromi”.

    I'm glad Origa has more new songs. Her Ar no surge songs are really beautiful. Really fitting for her voice

    I want Origa to sing a song for Final Fantasy XV, then the game would probably be perfect.

    For the Russian audience: Dear friends! I hasten to inform you about my participation in the Russian draft "Allods online". http://allods.mail.ru/news.php?article=3338 is the first, long-awaited work on the territory of Russia, where I will be at the end of August this year. This event coincides with the release of two new albums, my output which we all waited a very long time. Also, I'm planning to live in Moscow at the end of September. The exact dates will report later, but for now invite you to take part in a vocal contest! (Translated by Bing) Taken from her Facebook page

    Each one of the opening themes for the GitS:SAC series--Inner Universe", "Rise", and "player"--is epic and sets the perfect tone for its respective anime season or movie, and it's Origa's gorgeous vocals that play the biggest role in making that happen. At least to me, it's hard to think of the series without the openings popping into my mind, and they were a major reason why this series is my favorite anime series of all time.
