about

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.

Track Name: Scarborough Fair
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He once was a true love of mine
Track Name: Mary, Mary
There once was a woman named Mary
So fair
She spread beauty everywhere
Was she afraid of the dark?

I don't think she ever saw it
She was so bright
That no darkness could come near
Mary's light shone bright and clear

Mary, Mary
Shine so bright
I would stay with you in light
I'll stay with you here tonight

We are all like Mary
So fair
We spread beauty everywhere
Let your light shine bright and clear

Yours is a special beauty
Shining
With the love that flows through you
Let your light shine always true

Mary, Mary
Shine so bright
I would stay with you in light
We're here together, tonight
