More on LARAAJI
Initially working as a stand-up comedian and actor, LARAAJI began playing music on the streets of New York in the 1970s, improvising trance-inducing jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Brian Eno saw him playing one night in Washington Square Park and invited him to record an album for his seminal Ambient series (Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance, 1980).
He went onto release a prolific series of albums for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances. Today his music has been embraced by a new generation of musicians and his career has been celebrated with the Warp/All Saints retrospective Celestial Music 1970-2011, which was released in 2013.
