Music to inspire and uplift

Shrinari are a musical duo that perform throughout the UK and internationally. Lucidia and Rafael have been playing together since 2010. They met and fell in love musically and romantically and have been working together ever since. They are committed to making music that brings hope, fuels a positive outlook on life, and promotes ecological and spiritual awareness, translating into song the many stages and phases of the human experience. Their music transports the listener to a realm where senses are soothed and joy is reawakened. Their lyrical and melodic style is infused with passion, ranging from soulful and funky to mellow and spacious, sometimes described as psychedelic world folk.

As a duo, they have released an electro-acoustic album of Lucidia’s compositions “Awake to Wonder” (2012) and an acoustic EP of co-written songs “Beauty of the Night” (2015), an EP of Rafael’s compositions “Music Changes Worlds” (2018), as well as an EP of Lucidia’s songs “Soul Calling” (2019).

They have played their eclectic medicine music at alternative festivals including Boomtown, Sunrise and the All about Love festival.

They also play at sound healing, meditation and yoga retreats for master teachers such as Sianna Sherman, Bridget Woods Kramer, Jean Hall, Leila Sadeghee and Sandi Sharkey.

“I have been lucky enough to witness many performances by Shrinari and their music is absolutely mesmerizing. After first hearing them I booked them with their full band to play one of our main stages straight away and will aim to book them every year onwards!! Their music touches the hearts of the audience like no other… It’s safe to say I am one of their number 1 fans !!” Lak mitchell – Founder and Creative Director of Boomtown Festival UK

“Lucidia and Rafael are an incredible duo, their music ranges from the most sublime mantras with depth and subtlety to full power get-up-and boogie medicine music. All of their music takes you on a deep inner journey in their offering to the Divine. They have worked extensively with many traditions of medicine music and they are both outstanding songwriters in their own right. A whole week of their music would not be enough to be able to share the breadth of their offering.” Rita Hraiz (Wisdom Keeper, Visionary Artist and founder of

Rafael Marchante Angulo (BA JAZZ): Guitar and Vocals
Rafael Marchante Angulo is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, composer and arranger from Valencia (Spain) After a period of self taught exploration of the acoustic and electric guitar (1993-2002), he started his career as a singer songwriter in Spain (2002-2004), giving solo performances of original repertoire. He assisted his fellow songwriter Manuel Veleta in finishing the recording of his CD “Voz en off”. Some of the work on that CD was reworked by the internationally renowned Spanish band “Presuntos Implicados” on their album “Postales”, named after Manuel’s song (which features Rafael on acoustic and slide guitars). Since 2004 he has performed in venues such as The Roundhouse, the Royal Festival Hall, and the 12 Bar to name a few. Throughout the years he’s gathered many influences that have each added a flavour to his versatile musical expression. In 2015 he graduated with a BA in Jazz with honours focusing on the study of musical performance and arrangement at Middlesex University. His guitar playing features on “Mantra Lounge” and various other releases from the Radha Krishna label as well as the album “Innamorata” with fellow guitarist Andrea Terrano (Iguana Studios) and Felix Buxton (Basement Jaxx). One of the songs “Heatwave” was featured on a Cafe Del mar compilation, vol.24.

“Rafael is a brilliant guitarist with a deep musical knowledge. He is extremely versatile both in the studio and live. He’s a very quick learner. We play new pieces at short notice and his playing and singing are of a very high quality.” Andrea Terrano (Iguana Productions)

“Rafael is one of the few musicians I met travelling worldwide that maintains an extremely high vibration with his music, song after song, both
through his proficiency on the guitar and singing and his deep spiritual connection. A pleasure to play with and also to sit and listen to.”
