The legend tells us that around 1979, after intense activity as artist on the road, from around New York, Laraaji found in the case of his electrified zither, a Brian Eno’s visiting card who wished to meet him. After that meeting Eno produced “Day of radiance” the third chapter of his precious "Ambient #" series and the first of Laraaji’s several successful cds. Laraaji’s main instrument is the zither, an instrument similar to the ancient cithara with free strings on a wooden sound box . From a purely acoustic instrument he made it into an electric one in order to expand the reverberations and the pure notes he was able to extract. He played and registered with Bill Nelson, Brian Eno, Bill Laswell, Roger Eno, Harold Budd, Nana Vasconcelos, Vernon Reid, Haroumi Hosono, Kate St John, Audio Active, and many others. With “My orangeness” Laraaji comes back with a solo scented of incense and other aromatic spices. A very enjoyable and relaxing but also deep work in which he’s accompanied by beautiful musicians who enrich with new colors his palette of freely played strings.
