Rara Avis "Medicine"
- Label: Six Degrees
Combining over 15 years of musical study with an intuitive understanding of modern technology, Rara Avis is clearly no stranger to electronic music. As a teenager, his passion for blues guitar and Jimi Hendrix are what initially opened the doors to his studies, leading him to Los Angeles where he became involved in collaborations with many of the leading underground producers and DJs on the scene. The Shaktified EP is a collection of Rara's more recent work–fluent world rhythms and lush downtempo beats inspired by the reclusive-ness of his surroundings in Harbin Hot Springs, California.
