Laraaji

A 77-year-young American multi-instrumentalist, Laraaji is one of the pioneers of the New Age and ambient philosophies. In the early 70s, Laraaji lived in New York, admired Eastern mysticism, and performed in parks playing a vintage stringed instrument called the zither. In 1978, Brian Eno saw one of Laraaji’s street performances and helped him record and release an album called Ambient 3: Day of Radiance. The release introduced this American musician to a wide audience, and his next 40 albums made him a true legend of meditative music. His most recent record release is a 3-album project of solo piano improvisation entitled Sun Piano, Moon Piano, and Through Luminous Eyes, on All Saints Records. Laraaji also has traveled the world guiding therapeutic laughter release playshops and deep listening celestial music sessions.
