MiLù is the lyricist, composer and singer of her music.
Her first band 'Mila Mar', was carried by a playful elegance, and was a youthful rebellion in four octaves.
More mainstream and commercially informed releases and tours followed with 'Schiller'. After 2 gold records and co operations with filmmakers (Kurzfilmreihe / Berlinale 2004) miLù released her first German speaking solo album 'No Future in Gold'.
The songs on her new album *longing speaks with many tongues* - songs like Tara, Warm or Frida lead one to presume that she has now found her roots. It is not only 'one voice' that makes miLù so special; it is the diversity of her voice, with a range of four octaves and her multi-facetted expression.
miLù masters 'the art of the secret language of the soul'. A shaman in the north of Norway once said to miLù: You sing like the ocean silent and tempestuous. The wise man could not have expressed it more precisely. The new album 'longing speaks with many tongues' is puristic, archaic in its vitality, straightforward and self-contained and speaks directly to the listeners soul. It is not only 'one voice' that makes miLù so special; it is the diversity of her voice, with a range of four octaves and her multi-facetted expression. miLù says about her artistic work, that she cannot describe all her experiences with words: 'When I was a child, I had a near-death experience, when falling into a coma during surgery. Afterwards nothing in my life was like it was before. My life lost its implicitness. This is an existential and extraordinary experience that I can remember any time in my life. It is not the focus in my life, but forms the basis of my life philosophy and my art.'
Thus, it is only consistent that miLù uses her own language on her second solo album a universal vowel language, which may lead one to believe the Orient is located in the Arctic Ocean.
