My name is Zan. I have been learning and making music for over 20 years. I am a navigator of diverse soundscapes and a connoisseur of vibrational aesthetics. My world travels cultivated a breadth of musical interests including finger-style guitar, sound healing, western classical, Andean folk music, mantra, didjeridoo, and Indian raga.
Music can lift our spirits, inspire us, make us smile, connect us to each other, and bring us more fully into the moment. I aim to put these positive, illuminating aspects of music at the forefront of my craft.
My debut solo album “The Rain Has Come” (2016) is on Bandcamp, a world-instrumentation in a singer-songwriter style. My second solo album “Essence” (2018) is now complete, and more in my current direction of diverse styles, traditions, instrumentals, and rhythmic grooves. In addition, I’ve been playing in a new project called Raganova . We released a highly-dancable world-fusion album in January 2017.
