While Prince Rama is a band in the sense that it contains people making music, recording albums, and going on tour, there’s a whole world of other activity going on with this Brooklyn-based group. Taraka and Nimai Larson have been experimenting with their music in different forms over the years in vastly different environs: living in ashrams, working for utopian architects, writing manifestos, and delivering lectures from pools of fake blood. They’ve used a clever blend of mysticism, technology, aerobics, and props, to build a constantly evolving world filled with inspiration and music.
Featured Song: “XO”
Prince Rama’s Top Ten Hits of the End of the World is now available
