Bang on a Can and the Noguchi Museum present Laraaji


Bang on a Can and The Noguchi Museum continue their 2019 monthly summer concert series with the American multi-instrumentalist Laraaji, performing improvisations on the zither. Hailed as one of the forefathers of both ambient electronic and new age music, Laraaji’s mystical and uplifting combination of zither, vocals, and more have made a profound impact on listeners for decades. Of his recent Tiny Desk Concert, NPR described Laraaji’s music as “atmospheric,” “altering,” and like a “musical sunset.” The performance will take place in The Noguchi Museum’s outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain, the concert will move to the Museum’s galleries.
