From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Instrumental-symphonic rock with elaborate forays into contrapuntal movements such as "Crifana y Tamílstenes". Mia's music is a complex symphonic rock with definite latin folk influence with vocals of the *La La La* variety which beautifully contrast with the keyboards and a great guitar sound all heaped above a strong rhythmic section. They were highly influenced by symphonic prog, I hear mainly influences from Genesis, the acoustic bits on Tubular Bells come to mind and yes, ELP MIa were formed in the mid 70s, and the name stands for Independent Musicians Associated (MIA) which was a group of musicians and technicians. One of the best Argentinean albums IMO, I like the vibe of Mia, its kind of happy music...good to play on a sunny summers morning !
