LaraajiAmerican musician Laraaji is one of new age's most distinctive, prolific, and charismatic artists. A master of multiple instruments, Laraaji primarily constructs his lengthy, meditative soundscapes from an electronically altered zither, hammered dulcimer, kalimba, synthesizers, piano, and other instruments, as well as natural sounds and vocals. Since first gaining exposure in the early '80s after a chance meeting with ambient innovator Brian Eno, Laraaji has released countless cassettes and albums, including collaborations with several electronic, experimental, rock, and dub musicians. In addition to his musical career, he is well known for his Laughter Meditation Workshops.MatthewdavidMatthewdavid’s Mindflight is Heart Music. It’s a record of beauty that has evolved from explorations into his deepest emotions, visions and imagination. The Flights were most directly inspired by his profound connection with Michael Stearns’ Planetary Unfolding (Continuum Montage 1981). You can feel that Trust is it’s Brother. Stearns speaks of Dreams, Resonance, Unity, and Ecstasy. Matthew adds that this journey has been one of Healing, Discovery, Finding, and Transformation. The two and their kindred are wondrous Sonic-Energetic-Midwives helping to usher in this age of Expanded Consciousness.
