Laraaji is a Harlem, NY multi-instrumentalist, composer, recording artist, educated in music theory-composition and piano at Howard University. His music is informed by his love of dance movement and trance meditation.


Whether using monochord instruments, singing, or deploying electronics-kissed percussion, Laraaji’s music remains connected to cosmic African-American tradition, and as hypnotically beautiful as his work has been he has never been afraid to inject ripples of tension and dissonance into his trance-inducing journeys…Visionary sound and bliss lifestyle.
