Ariana Saraha & Fernando Medina with Tony Khalife

  • Ojai Underground Exchange 1016 West Ojai Avenue Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

Join us for a special night of music Thursday April 19th for Flight Behavior Spring Tour 2018 with Ariana Saraha (vox, frame drums, kalimba...) & Fernando Medina (drums, percussion, "rhythm painter"). Special opening set and guest musicianship by Tony Khalife! A portion of the proceeds will go towards local ecosystem restoration and fire remediation in partnership with the Ojai Land Conservency Association. Ariana Saraha is a singer, musician, and composer with a global soul. Most often compared to Celtic singer Loreena McKennitt and alt-world artists Dead Can Dance, Saraha draws upon influences from the Mediterranean, Middle East, India, and Celtic & Eastern Europe, as well as performing a choice selection of traditional music of the same diaspora. But what really invites the listener in, beyond her vocal finesse and Old World influences, is Saraha’s rare mixture of raw wildness and heartfelt intimacy.
Flight Behavior is her new project with Fernando Medina, drummer/percussionist. Together they weave a danceable and sensual mix of music that evokes the night sky, the flowering earth, and the blood river in our veins. The show begins at 7:30, and there is a $15-$20 suggested donation at the door.
