Ariana Saraha

Ariana Saraha is a singer, musician, and composer from the wild West with an Old World 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, 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 exotic influences, is Saraha’s rare mixture of raw wildness and heartfelt intimacy.

"Ariana’s voice is a soaring, beautiful thing. Wrapped around expertly-played instruments of the Middle East, Persia, and India, her song very much takes flight. You follow it like a bird into the blue or a diver into the depths. Where Dead Can Dance brought us into the Labyrinth, Ariana Saraha offers to meet us in the Silence.” — Dan Fairchild, Concert Producer

"I am utterly unprepared for her wild, mystical soul and music that transports me to faraway realms and ages. I feel as if I have stumbled unknowingly upon a gypsy caravan and stepped into the circle of dancing firelight and music." - L.R. Heartsong, Author

"Ariana not only has one of the most achingly beautiful voices you have ever heard, but she writes incredible songs as well. Her songs go to depths and heights not often visited by songwriters today. Mystical, sensual, inspiring, and real; she is not afraid of the darkness, but, just as important, she is not afraid of the light." -- T.D.H., Boulder, CO
