Something interesting I discovered today when a friend of mine (who is not a Trek fan, but loves downtempo and trip hop music) linked to a video of an artist on Facebook, called Kira Neris
(sic). Normally I had to check them on google and I looked up the myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/bajorland
Apparently Kira Neris is a French guy from Strasbourg who's released one Nu-Jazz / House / Down-tempo album, and his myspace page says:
"Inspired by the character from Star Trek Deep Space Nine, he took the name 'Kira Neris' finding that there was correlation between his music's thought-provoking melancholy and the character's complex personality."
