E-an-na is a folk metal band from Sibiu/Timişoara, Romania. This is ''Jiana'', our debut single, mixed & mastered by Marius Costache (who also worked with Goran Bregović, White Walls, Coma, Lake Of Tears, Amenra etc.) at Studio 148. Special thanks to Isa Ienciu for the lyric video.
The world in which mankind was born is falling appart with stunning precision. Not only physically, but also on the spiritual level. The air that we breathe is no longer air, the soil on which we step is no longer soil, the words that we speak are no longer words. The toxic breeze embraces the entirety of this universe, a universe with no dens left for souls to hide in. Humankind bows to pieces of paper or plastic, without which life cannot mannifest itself anymore. Surrounded by so many wrong moral and life values, raised to undeserved ranks. We chose as such: if this world is not enough for us, then we shall find a new one. This is how E-an-na has been born. Or, at least, this is how we unveiled it. E-an-na is a realm of ours, towards which we left, foreseeing the ending in this world. A realm where breath is still green. In which birds sing tirelessly and rivers don't have unnatural colours. A home of the sky.
Jiana is an ancestral dance from the area surrounding Sibiu, our hometown. We've adapted it, so now it also fits the needs of the dead, not only those of the living. Therefore, the lyrics say ''Our dead man dances''. The dead man represents each of us at a certain moment, a moment of transmigration into the realms beyond. It is in powerful moments as such when the spirit journey can be altered, so that spirit and body can join once again and enter E-an-na.
