Pax Humana brings to the scene a fresh alchemy of post-modern electronica concocted by Samir Zarif and Brian Lindgren.

With a background in the jazz and classical traditions, their wide spectrum of musical ideas led to the creation of music they describe as “symphonic electronic” music. Incorporating vocals, acoustic saxophone and strings over mind-smashing beats, their music has garnered much attention.

Coming this February 16th, Pax Humana will be releasing their debut album, “A Matter of Heart.” Commissioned by visual artist, Brian Reed, this work was first performed in April 2011 for the opening of his installation, also titled, “A Matter of Heart.”

Since it’s inception at an inconspicuous but explosive 2011 New Years party, Pax Humana has collaborated with many outstanding New York artists including: Milán, Maycí, Sarah Vasilas, Doron Lev, and Olivia de Prato. The duo also regularly DJs at One Last Shag in Brooklyn.

In the spirit of the group’s name, which means “peace through humanism,” Pax Humana acknowledges as their primary mission the creation of a peaceful world for all.
