BIO:Laraaji Venus Nadabrahmananda (LVN)

LaraaJi Venus Nadabrahmananda(LVN) has performed in USA and abroad since late 1970’s with his innovative style of electric open tuned zither/harp. After studying piano, music theory & composition at Howard University School of Fine Arts in Washington , DC during the mid nineteen-sixties he became inspired to move to New York city to follow his passion for both musical sound composition and comedy acting. After mild success in theatre, film, TV commercials and night club performance he investigated eastern philosophy, meditation and meta-physics, an investigation which initiated his creative expression into cosmic themes and vibrant new musical tone language .
From Busking in New York City during the late 1970's into early 1980's, to performing improvisational compositions on concert stage, to collaborations within interdisciplinary artist events, to Spirit Festivals, to Yoga Expos and
to many recording sessions he has brought an inspiring non-traditional Zither musical sound that has captivated a peaceful global following.
