Enya (born Eithne Patricia Ní Bhraonáin) on May 17, 1961, Gaoth Dobhair, County Donegal, Ireland, sometimes presented in the media as Enya Brennan, is an Irish singer, instrumentalist and composer.

She is Ireland's best-selling solo artist and is officially the country's second biggest musical export (after U2).

 Her works have earned her four Grammy Awards and an Academy Award nomination, and she is also famous for performing in 10 different languages during her lengthy career. Enya is an approximate transcription of how Eithne is pronounced in her native Irish, in the Donegal dialect.

Enya achieved a breakthrough in her career in 1988 with the album Watermark, which featured the hit song "Orinoco Flow" (sometimes known as "Sail Away").

Much of her music shows influence of some Irish music and classical music.

As a musical group, Enya represents a partnership between three people: Enya herself, who composes and performs the music; Nicky Ryan, who produces the albums; and Roma Ryan, who writes the lyrics in various languages.

 Enya performs all percussion, instruments, and vocals in her pieces unless specified. Although there are certain pieces where acoustic instruments are featured, almost all sounds of her pieces are created by a synthesizer.


Her trademark sound is achieved by layering her voice as much as 80 times.

Enya has given several live performances on various television shows, events and ceremonies  but she has yet to do a concert.
