Please join us for a rare performance by ambient icon Laraaji and LA experimentalists Sun Araw, two colossal forces in contemporary electronic music.

Laraaji's musical radiance has continued to shine brightly over four decades, starting with 1980's Ambient 3: Day of Radiance (third in Brian Eno's classic ambient series). Sun Araw emerged in 2008 with transformative recordings that combine classic dub and reggae effects with elements of noise, drone and psychedelia.

This first-time live collaboration in the US celebrates the release of Professional Sunflow – the inaugural record on Superior Viaduct's W.25TH imprint – featuring Laraaji's soulful vocals and signature instrument, zither, along with Sun Araw's Cameron Stallones (guitar/keyboards) and Alex Gray (computer synthesis).
