Dutch-Norwegian solo artist Luíra debuts with her new single and music video Secret Medicine. She is a young classically trained multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who moved to the north of Norway. The music of Luíra is an acquired taste: a unique blend of contemporary classical, experimental alternative rock and folk music. Combined with a beautifully filmed music video, this release is a thrilling introduction to this new artist.
Luíra created her very own style, an alternative style of music with polyphonic voices and folk instruments. Coming from classical music and travelling later on through the thrilling world of heavy metal with her band Adeia, this is something completely different and exciting! The songs have a classical foundation and she builds bridges between the classical and the alternative world. Ancient Viking-, folk- and classical instruments come together in an interesting way: from a Sami drum and a violin drum, to a bass tagelharpa and classical-folk instruments such as violins and a viola. Finally, everything meets a current music technology, which makes it all a very enchanting journey!
"Secret Medicine is about the dark and the light. About depression and the influence of society: from busy cities, to rushing people, and overcoming trauma. It`s about the purity of mother nature and how we can find our way out of the dark depths of our soul. How the silence, the peace and simplicity, and last but not least, the beauty of unspoiled nature around us are the key to happiness and true peace of the mind" - Luíra says.
