Era (styled as +eRa+) is a French New Age music project headed by composer Eric Lévi.
They use lyrics written by Guy Protheroe that, although sounding similar to Greek or Latin, are in fact deliberately devoid of any exact meaning. Also notable for providing the soundtrack to the Time Travel medieval-themed comedy film series Les Visiteurs.
- Era (1996)
- Era 2 (2000)
- The Mass (2003)
- Reborn (2008)
- Arielle Dombasle by Era (2013)
They provide examples of:
- Gratuitous Latin: Omnipresent, except in the songs where the lyrics are in English instead.
- Ominous Latin Chanting: It's not real Latin, but it sounds ominous all the same. Outstanding examples are "The Mass", "Enae Volare" and "Sins".
- One-Woman Wail: Many of their songs feature female vocalists in the lead, such as "Tiesto Demoni".
