Laraaji and L’Rain are both long champions of NYC’s DIY scenes, whose music represents two distinct voices in the evolution of ambient music.
Laraaji’s unique approach to music making has led to his renown as a composer, experimentalist, and mystic. His criterion album Day of Radiance, volume 3 of BrianEno’s iconic Ambient series, remains a touchstone of meditative music as well as long form solo improvisation.
L’Rain is the mononym of Brooklyn based multi-instrumentalist Taja Cheek whose songs enigmatically blend spiritual music, tape loops, pop and RnB.
Bang on a Can, and BOMB Magazine will present L’Rain and Laraaji in conversation at the Jewish Museum. In addition to an artist discussion, the event will feature a live concert performance by Laraaji from his home studio in New York City.
