Description

The most inspired music on the planet finds its highest expression at the annual Fes Festival of World Sacred Music. B'ismillah ("In the name of God") brings together the highlights of this landmark event.

B'ismillah documents music from the world's most accomplished artists in many traditions, including Pakistani qawwali chants dating back to the 11th century; Egyptian madih odes; flamenco-style Christian saeta that are shot "like an arrow" into the heart of God; ancient gwalior chants from the north of India; and the mystical music that transforms mere mortals into the whirling dervishes of the Sufi tradition.

This music was captured live while it happened, allowing the listener to feel the energy and love of this very special event. Utterly authentic, B'ismillah radiates a divine presence beyond the artificial boundaries of maps and politics, into the hearts of world-music lovers everywhere.

Featuring:

  • Sama'—Sufism's sacred chants
  • Tribal Drums from the Sahara
  • Madih—Chanted Poetry of Islam
  • Sufi Qawwali Singers
  • Saeta—Flamenco Songs of the Catholic Liturgy
  • Oud (lute) Songs of Andalusia
  • Chants of the Berber Tribes

The music of this CD is a great introduction to the other side of the middle east. The side not seen in the media.
