ENGLISH BELOW
Laraaji besøger Strøm Lab til en snak om sin musikalske karriere, der indtil videre har strukket sig over fem årtier. Han vil blandt andet give et kort overblik over sin egen begyndelse og udvikling i musik, fortælle om særlige minder og musikalske oplevelser. Han vil også fortælle om kunsten at spille et instrument og sin personlige filosofi og musikkens rolle i menneskers liv.

Det bliver en mulighed for at høre Laraaji fortælle med egne ord om sit liv i musikken – fra sin nylige turné til sine ‘Laughter Meditation Workshops’, som han holder verden over.

Laraajis musikkarriere startede i 1970’erne på New Yorks gader, hvor han spillede improviserede koncerter med sin autoharpe og solgte hjemmelavede tapes. En dag blev gademusikeren med den meditative sound opdaget af Brian Eno, der inviterede ham til at bidrage med et album til Enos Ambient-serie.

Efter at have udgivet et stort antal albums på forskellige pladeselskaber og ikke mindst den nyligt udgivne dobbelt-LP “Bring On The Sun”, udgivet på All Saints Records, har Laraaji etableret sig som en af elektro-genrens mest produktive og karismatiske kunstnere og musikpionerer.

Laraaji kan opleves under Strøm Festival 2019, hvor han spiller til
Strøm x God Goes Deep i FRB Kirke efter sin talk den 7. august.

Dato: 7. august 2019

Talk slutter: 19.00
Sted: Strøm Lab

Strøm Festival
For 13. år i træk fylder Strøm Festival København og Frederiksberg med elektronisk musik. Vi bruger byens urbane rum – fra åbne pladser til de mørke natklubber, fra monumentale kirker til offentlige gader. Alt sammen for at matche den musikalske æstetik med et passende miljø.

Strøm Festival 2019 foregår fra d. 7. – 10. august 2019.

He will give a brief overview of his start and progress in music, tell about significant memories and musical experiences. He will also tell about the art of playing an instrument, his own personal philosophy and the role of music in human life.

It’s an opportunity to hear Laraaji in his own voice tell about his life in music – from recent touring to his ‘Laughter Meditation Workshops’ which he runs around the world.

Laraaji’s career began in the streets of New York in the seventies. He played improvised concerts with his autoharp and sold homemade tapes. One dag the street musician with the meditative sound got discovered by Brian Eno who invited him to contribute to Eno’s Ambient series.
