Known in the music world as Rara Avis, Alex King-Harris is a dedicated master of his craft with over 20 years experience in multi-instrumental live performance and music production. Flute, guitar, didgeridoo, harmonic overtone singing and DJ techniques are layered together to create the backdrop for opening prayers and guided meditations – inspiring ecstatic journeys in venues as intimate as a yoga studio and as sprawling as a festival setting. Playing with Desert Dwellers, Shamans Dream and Liquid Bloom laid the foundation for his current solo work on Six Degrees Records. His styles range across a multitude of genres including Ambient, Downtempo, World groove, African, Middle Eastern, East Indian, Tribal, Funk, House, and Hip Hop.
