Circle Of Celebration is the collaboration between composer Christopher Bono’s NOUS ensemble, ambient music mainstay Laraaji and fellow sound healing musician Arji OceAnanda. It will be out on November 12th via Our Silent Canvas. It is the fourth and final album to emerge from the NOUS: A Musical Rite recording sessions that took place at Dreamland Studios, in Hurley NY.

It features Christopher, McMahon, Thor Harris (Swans, Angels of Light), Greg Fox (Guardian Angel, Ben Frost), Shahzad Ismaily (Yoko One, Laurie Anderson), and Grey McMurray (itsnotyouitsme, Tyondai Braxton).

I think the theme of the circle and celebration that runs through what we created on that special day in Dreamland is really important,” reflects Laraaji. “A circle is endless, and we wanted the listener to feel like they’re in this circle with us, in a joyous, ritualistic celebration. To me, these pieces feel like an invitation to look at what’s going on in your life – or has gone on in your life – that’s worthy of celebration while you’re listening to this album.
