February 2007 - In Berlin, Carlos and Tara LeAnn listen to Brian Eno's "Day of Radiance." The sound is bright, hypnotic: a zither's lush, repetitive patterns. Carlos plays his crystal singing bowls percussively, matching the rhythm of the zither. It turns out that Laraaji , the musician involved, lives in New York. There is some discussion about emailing him, but this falls through triage in the busy excitement of Wavegarden's first months together.
October 2007 - Wavegarden is invited to perform at Mark Becker's New Life Expo in New York City. As the concert ends and other musicians come in to jam, who should make an appearance but Laraaji!
By 2008 a beautiful connection develops as Carlos and Tara LeAnn learn how to convert autoharps into zithers. There is magic in the collaboration, and Laraaji tours Germany, France, and Belgium, playing a few concerts with Carlos and Tara LeAnn. The most memorable is on May 30 at the Heilig-Kreuz-Kirche in Berlin, where this wonderful music originates.
