Leaving Records is proud to present three reissues of seminal works by new age musician, composer, and laughter meditation workshop leader Laraaji.
Recorded between 1978 and 1983, these works have not been reissued in full since their original release. Although some excerpts of the material have been featured on various compilations, this is the first time in over 30 years that one can experience the uninterrupted duration of these cosmic etudes in their complete form. The added length creates an immersive environment of fresh, exploratory, experimental and healing sounds in which to dwell – these are the proper, entire experiences as intended by their creator.
Originally, these releases were hand-made and dubbed to cassette by Laraaji himself. Available both on cassette and digitally, these reissues offer Laraaji’s early music in both its original form and a form that did not exist at the time of its recording. Regarding this parallel, Laraaji reflects, “Having the music move in dimensions I didn’t predict… It feels like an extended blessing.”
• Laraaji is one of the world's most respected New Age musicians, famed for his work with Brian Eno, and has been releasing music since the 1970s
• This three-album reissue brings together early Laraaji music recorded between 1978 and 1983, much of which has never been heard before
• Recently, a reissue of reworks in 2014 via All Saints Records and a collaborative album with Blues Control on RVNG Intl reignited interest in Laraaji's mystical music
• Laraaji has been covered extensively in publications such as Pitchfork, The Quietus, Wondering Sound, The Wire and more
