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…..”

“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)
When not singing, drumming, dancing, listening to birds, playing with plants, or adventuring into the wild, Ariana can often be found writing.
