511 West 4th Street, Suite 2, Bloomington, IN 47404
JNCD002 $29.00 Blu-ray CD

Mira is a self-released album from the international band Jienat,
mixed and mastered on two crystal-clear Blu-ray CDs. One CD offers the
album as an audio-only Blu-ray disc; the second presents the album as
a standard CD/high-definition SACD. The music plays beautifully on
standard CD players as well as SACD or Blu-ray players. Mira is an
eclectic celebration of international musical influences from West
Africa, Sami culture, and Bahia, yet ultimately embodies the Arctic
world music and culture dear to Jienat's collective heart. A love for
the land, from its unpredictable weather to its inquisitive wild
reindeer, runs through the passionate strains of this unforgettable
album. Highly recommended. The tracks are "Sissel" (3:25), "Andreas/
Andre" (4:21), "Angelique" (3:56), "Dancehall" (4:01), "Radio
Belgrano" (3:26), "Fredrik Albert" (4:57), "Mira" (4:17),
"Adama" (5:42), "Tudeer" (2:24), "Gille" (4:32) and "August
Samuel" (6:22).
