Three Grammy nominations, 70 million sold records, over 100 gold and platinum album sale certifications and this is just a visible part of Enigma project’s mystery. Despite these stunning numbers the project has never toured or appeared in live shows. “Sadeness“, “Return to Innocence“, “Gravity of Love“ and many other hits were performed live by original members from Enigma project. Andru Donalds, Angel X and Fox Lima whose voices were behind many Enigma songs have performed as “Original Enigma Voices“ in a first part of a worldwide tour in spring of 2019. Together with string orchestra and live band forthcoming 2-hour long shows featured majority of popular Enigma songs with a fusion of classical and modern signature elements.
Founded in 1980’s by a German producer Michael Cretu, Enigma project entranced millions of listeners with unique and iconic sounds that are incomparable to anything. A synthesis of music styles, Gregorian chanting, ethnic psalms, church bells, organs and alike instruments creates a very specific, atmospheric and sometimes even psychedelic sounds. Overwhelming record sales and yet hidden faces have made Enigma one of the most popular and mystifying musical project of the last decades. The success of Enigma was an inspiration to many artists and producers including Gregorian project that performs modern pop and rock songs with a Gregorian chant-inspired style.
The shows featured over twenty songs from different albums, including “The Rivers of Belief“ from the first album “MCMXC A.D“ up to “Amen“ composition recorded in their last “The Fall of Live of a Rebel Angel“ album. Andru Donalds says that this was a miraculous show and an unforgettable journey into a spellbinding world of sounds and imagery with yet unheard sound of songs.
