Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, HIRA bears testimony to lead singer Meta Dia’s philosophy of undivided love, including love for one self as a precondition to all forms of love” (Werner Zips, Vienna University). Mixing world music genres with roots reggae and lyrically expressing Meta Dia’s spiritual background and growth, HIRA seeks to trespass boundaries and embrace differences between people, cultures and religions. Moreover, HIRA calls for spiritual unity, religious tolerance and finding oneself. Fllavors of Bossa Nova, Middle Eastern sounds, Moroccan Gnaoua, Classical Jazz, Flamenco, Rock and African Rhythms are mixed into a backbone of Roots Reggae. A genre Meta and The Cornerstones have reinvented since their first album ‘Forward Music’ (2008) and followed by their second album ‘Ancient Power’ (2013).
