Salyu (サリュウ) is a female singer born October 13, 1980 from Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan. The name ‘Salyu’ was given to her by her producer 小林武史 (Kobayashi Takeshi), deriving from the french word ‘Salut’ which means ‘Hi’. Most of her information is kept secret however on the September 14, 2006 episode of Utaban, she revealed her real name, Ayako. Ever since she was little she learned piano yet during grammar school she caught pneumonia and was suggested by her doctor to either take up swimming or singing. She chose singing and joined a choir singing children and recent songs. In 1998 she aspired to become a musician after watching a friend’s band play and looked up auditioning ads. She made it to the Sony SD audition where music producer 小林武史 (Kobayashi Takeshi) discovered her, enquired about her and asked if she’d like to participate in 岩井俊二’s (Iwai Shunji) cult hit film, All About Lily Chou-Chou of 2000.

Prior to the film’s release Salyu released two singles, “グライド” (Glide) on March 19, 2000 and “共鳴(空虚な石)” (Kyoumei (kyuuko na ishi)) on June 21, 2000 under the role of Lily Chou-Chou in order to give the effect that Lily existed. After the movie, she released an album featuring the songs she sang as Lily entitled “呼吸” (Kokyuu) on October 17, 2001. In fact the song “回復する傷” (Kaifuku Suru Kizu) from this album was featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 1 in 2003 (where The Bride encounters Hanzo’s swords). In August of 2001, she’s also credited to have sung in the chorus of Mr.Children’s c/w song 花 (Hana). « hide
