Music and mysticism are two concepts immediately brought to mind when thinking of Laraaji, who has been performing shimmering and ethereal meditations since the 1970s. His unique sound comes from his mixture of instruments which include the zither, an ancient stringed instrument played horizontally, and the mbira, made from a plank of wood and metal tines that are plucked and traditionally used in Zimbabwe, along with his specialization in piano.
Laraaji’s ability to create soundscapes that are experienced tactically throughout one’s whole body made him the perfect playlist partner for our Lucid Dreaming Kit we made in collaboration with Anima Mundi.
We asked Laraaji a couple of questions about his relationship with music and the correlation between sound and sleep, as well as, the Madre Radio playlist he created to accompany the dreaming experience alongside our new Madre x Anima Mundi Lucid Dreaming Kit.
