Era is the eponymous debut album by Eric Lévi's new-age project Era, first released in 1996 and re-released in 1998. Era mixes Gregorian chants and occasionally world music with contemporary electronic arrangements. It is reminiscent of new-age music projects such as Enigma, Gregorian, and Deep Forest. Lyrics are written in Pseudo-Latin and English, and some are based on beliefs of the 13th century French Christian Catholic Apostolic Roman, the Cathars. The band has sold more than 12 million albums. They are best known for their singles "Ameno" and "Madona". Era's live shows and music videos often feature artists dressed in medieval or traditional clothes and armour. Usually, actors Pierre Bouisierie and Irene Bustamante perform at Era shows.
Evolución is the name of a Chilean Progressive rock band. Although founded and active since the Eighties, keyboards player Pedro Muñoz' group had to wait for more than twenty years before its works were eventually published, thanks to the good care of the Musea and Mylodon labels. "La Era De Piscis" is thus a collection of pieces recorded between 1982 and 1986. As for the music, it is halfway between the Progressive rock of Camel ("Music Inspired By The Snow Goose" period) and Eighties-like fusion jazz-rock, the whole with an innate melodic sense. The quality of the whole album is simply so remarkable that you finally wonder why such music was never officially released earlier!
