Enigma is a German musical project founded in by Romanian-German musician and producer Michael Cretu. Cretu had released several solo records, collaborated with various artists, and produced albums for his then-wife, German pop singer Sandra, before he conceived the idea of a new-age, worldbeat project. The album remains Enigma's biggest, helped by the international hit single, "Sadeness Part I ", which sold 12 million units alone. According to Cretu, the inspiration for the creation of the project came from his desire to make a kind of music that did not obey "the old rules and habits" and presented a new form of artistic expression with mystic and experimental components. The first was The Cross of Changes , which incorporated tribal and ethnic influences and sold over 8 million copies worldwide, followed by Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi! Enigma's fourth album The Screen Behind the Mirror started a slight departure from the previous world music themes towards a heavier electronic atmosphere. This evolution culminated with Voyageur , its fifth and more pop-based album, and A Posteriori , a work inspired by the future collision between the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, with distinct operatic tones and an electronic spectrum closer to Voyageur than the earlier releases. Seven Lives Many Faces followed and contained a mixture of classical and modern elements ranging from ethnic chants to rap and dubstep influences.
