Laraaji’s first major album was released in 1980, after Brian Eno heard him playing the electric zither on the streets of New York City and was so captivated by his mystical, meditative sound that he invited Laraaji to contribute to a groundbreaking series of ambient music records he was putting together. In the subsequent forty years, Laraaji has toured the world with his innovative blend of electric and acoustic instruments, ranging from micro-tuned mounted gongs to exotic effect pedals—all of it coming together to express the sacred and the joyful in a process he describes as “free-associating with time, space, and energy.” The result is a shimmering, trance-like sonic journey that simultaneously brings listeners into the moment and out of this world.
