Jadranka Stojaković, singer from Vandal Hearts

This was mentioned on the Suikoden Revival movement page on facebook so I thought I'd bring it up here in case anyone was interested.

Jadranka Stojaković, who sang the soundtrack for the Konami PS1 game Vandal Hearts, passed away on 3rd May 2016.

Do you know the Suikoden Vocal Collections? Imagine they hired Jadranka for them. OMG, these songs would have been awesome. Strong and beautiful songs need a strong and beautiful voice. Her themes in Vandal Hearts are more memorable than the story, so her voice was kind of wasted. She should have replaced these lifeless weak high-pitch voices in Suikoden.

Some more examples of her talent:

RIP Jadranka

I think that second track is the one that was used on the original Suikoden 1 advert. Too bad Konami didn't keep hold of her for more of their RPGs. There's definitely something otherworldly and charming about her voice.
