Era is a music project by Eric Levi that is often based on chants in an imaginary language close to Latin. The music could be described as New Age. Their music mixes classical music, opera, and Gregorian chants with other contemporary styles. Their music was used in the soundtrack for the French film Les Visiteurs and in Sylvester Stallone‘s “Driven“. Eric Levi uses English choirs to record the songs.
The song “Ameno” was used in Australia within “The Power of Yes” advertisements for Optus Communications. The band has sold more than 10 million albums. Era is also famous among mixed martial arts fans due to their song “Enae Volare Mezzo” being the theme song of Fedor Emelianenko.
Era’s live shows often feature vocalists dressed in medieval clothes and armour.
