Ariana Saraha is a singer, musician, and composer from the wilds of the West with an Old World soul. Most often compared to Celtic singer Loreena McKennitt and alt-world artists Dead Can Dance, Saraha is a true and versatile original. As one critic said, “I listen to Loreena McKennitt, Enya, Clannad, etc. and often after about three or four songs I’m feeling like it all sounds the same. Not the case with [Saraha].” Perhaps it helps that she has performed and studied music as diverse as Turkish art rock, Persian & Armenian laments, Lebanese pop, Egyptian classical music, Bulgarian folk harmonies, Indian ragas, Greek & Sephardic love songs, and Peruvian icaros. But what really invites the listener in, beyond her vocal finesse and exotic influences, is Saraha’s rare mixture of raw wildness and heartfelt intimacy.
