“I feel as if I have stumbled unknowingly upon a gypsy caravan and stepped into the circle of dancing firelight and music…”
At once earthy and ethereal, Ariana’s rich voice and exquisite compositions take the listener on a mystical and soulful journey. Most often compared to Celtic singer Loreena McKennitt and alt-world artists Dead Can Dance, Ariana is a spellbinding artist, escorting audiences into realms untouched by the day-to-day. Having studied and performed music from the Mediterranean, Middle East and India, Ariana brings these exotic sounds into her Celtic-tinged original compositions, as well as performing an evocative blend of traditional music from these places. But beyond the intrigue of Ariana’s influences and her impeccable vocal finesse, what draws the listener in is her rare mixture of raw wildness and heartfelt intimacy. Through her entrancing melodies, sultry grooves, and compelling lyricism, Ariana becomes a siren for the soulfully seeking. She has just released her first full-length album, Maiden of Midnight.
