BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine St, Florence, MA MA)

An immersive sound experience led by multi-instrumentalist LARAAJI, who puts the healing and mystical properties of music into practice. He has performed ambient music on piano, electric zither (stringed instrument), and mbira (thumb piano) since 1979.

LARAAJI is an internationally recognized musician, multi-instrumentalist, mystic, and laughter meditation practitioner based in New York City. He is known for his specially designed electric zither, his vocal performances, and his improvisation; he also works with African mbira, synthesizers, hand drums, and percussion. Experimentation with altered tunings has led LARAAJI to a deeply engaging performance sound, which he refers to as “Celestial Vibration,” recalling an earlier paranormal sound hearing experience. LARAAJI brings Eastern mysticism to trance-inducing jams on his modified autoharp, with various electronic effects. He has recorded over 50 solo and collaborative albums.
