Surabhi is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. It is the second volume of the Merzcow trilogy, inspired by cattle veneration in Hinduism. The theme was suggested by the owner of the label, who visited the Care for Cows charity in Vrindavan, India, which takes care of abandoned cattle. The music is intended to be "warm and organic", and was made using granular synthesis, oscillators, and tone generators.
Surabhi is another name of Kamadhenu, a Hindu goddess who is the mother of all cows and a "cow of plenty". The album photos were provided by Care for Cows. Vanamali and Balarama are the names of cattle at Care for Cows, the cover depicts Vanamali, and the rear Balarama. "Yamuna Snan" refers to bathing in the Yamuna river.
Surabhi was preceded by Kamadhenu. The final volume, Gomata, was released in February 2017.
