mevlevi dervishIn 1998 I participated in a recording called  “You – New Sufi Music.”

From the publishers web page:

“This recording is an attempt to share the spontaneous heart-music of the Sufis. Such expressions of love may often disregard the formalities and glossy varnishes of the conventional world. Yet, Sufi music is essentially a music of luminous inner intention and transmission.”

Some of the participants were seasoned musicians, some were members of the community who did not consider themselves to be musicians.

Here’s a track:

La ilaha ilallah – [audio:zhikr.mp3]


“You” is available from Pir Press.
