Medicine Music for an Aching World…

Ariana Saraha is a singer, musician, and songcrafter 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, she writes, records and performs original and traditional world music with Celtic, Mediterranean & Middle Eastern influences.

Saraha now performs as a duo (with occasional guest musicians) as FLIGHT BEHAVIOR with Fernando Medina, drummer. “Their music will awaken something primal and ancient, instilling you with a sense of long-forgotten majesty…..”

In Concert…

Like most of you, our year has been upended, and we are uncertain when we will play live for you again. We are deeply saddened, as that is our greatest joy ~ but at the same time it offers us the opportunity to focus on our craft, record more music, and tend the earth we love.

In this time, I hope you will join us on our YouTube channel (we post regularly), Facebook, and Instagram. You can also buy our music on Bandcamp, or on our very own Shop page (and everywhere else music is streamed and sold).

And if you wish to go even deeper, get exclusive sneak peeks and goodies, and support us while we’re off the road, please join us on Patreon!

And of course join our list to hear about new releases and tour dates when they come!→

Join Ariana on PATREON for even more music, exclusive goodies, and peeks behind-the-scenes… Your contribution and dialogue adds to the fun! —>

“This evening is the first time I have listened to Ariana Saraha’s “Maiden of Midnight,” and I am utterly unprepared for her wild, mystical soul and music that transports me to faraway realms and ages. Frankly, I am blown away. I feel as if I have stumbled unknowingly upon a gypsy caravan and stepped into the circle of dancing firelight and music. It seems the perfect soundtrack for a foggy, coastal night at the edge of the continent, here at the threshold of earth, sea and sky. At times there is a Sarah Brightman quality to Saraha’s soprano voice, though the music is less symphonic and more Old World — which is actually part of its allure. Less sleekly produced, more authentic. Most of the songs are at least 6-minutes long, well over the typical 3-minute pop composition. Indeed, there is nothing commercial here or geared to court a mainstream audience. In the very best way, “Maiden of Midnight” strikes me as unapologetic — true to the essence of Ariana’s wild, gypsy soul.”L.R. Heartsong, Author (from the article, The Wild Soul Songstress, featured in the Soul Artist Journal)

The Urgency of Slowing Down

Wild ones...I don’t think this is the springtime any of us were expecting. But it is springtime nonetheless, so I’m peeking out of my [quarantine] cave to say hello and send blessings from my hermit heart... How are...

Beauty is Essential

Beauty is essential. In nature, it bespeaks a healthy and vibrant ecosystem. As a human, it calms, enlivens, and inspires my soul, all the while reminding me simply that this. is. home. I feel very fortunate to be able...

In Praise of Curves

Embodied Voice

This is not Palo Santo…

This is not Palo Santo. Nothing against that beautiful plant, but it doesn't live here, and I realize I don't even know what it looks like! A quick google search turns up almost exclusively pics of sticks for sale. But...

Autumn Grief

The flowers have all faded, the seeds scattered to the wind and to be swallowed by the ground; the moisture has evaporated and leaves burnt by the sun hang on by a mere thread before casting themselves off to die and become mulch and eventually new soil…

Voice of the Earth

And still there are places where the pika squeak and thrive, where cold-loving evergreens reach toward the sky, where wild mountain waters run under stone through creases in alpine meadows… . . . …But even those pikas are threatened, so many of the trees have been lost to beetle-kill and other blight, and the waters are low, the snows shallow…
