MOMO Festival

Blues Control & Laraaji (US)

Subbacultcha presents Blues Control & Laraaji + AU in WORM (Motel Mozaique afterparty)

Ambient/drone duo Blues Control joined hands (and instruments) with the mystical zitherist/composer Laraaji last year, and consequently released their collabo ‘FRKWYS Vol.8’ in November. Guitarist Russ Waterhouse and  keyboardist Lea Cho have always found themselves at the edges of noise rock, drone, psychedelia and ambient, but a direct association with Laraaji is nonetheless surprising. Laraaji studied singing, violin, piano and trombone at the conservatory in the early sixties, and later studied Eastern mysticism, ending up in the New Age movement. He has released nearly fifty records since 1978.
