Quote by Jean Houston

Next is now, world music as the single most potent force in the culture of fusion ... World music-makers are like shamans, carrying us on magic carpets of riffs and melodies through states of consciousness that spin us out of time to lands not yet invented but glimpsed on the aural horizon ... And so we see that music brings us, in the jumping of our cells, from what is past to what is trying to become the future. lt expresses and fulfills our need to hear the spirit in the dark.
(Jean Houston in Jump Time, Sentient Publ. 2004)

Sufi Ecstasy - Sufi music as a path to peace

Various Artists

Sufi music and movement (dance) is an integral part of Sufism and recreates the flow of the universe: revolution, vibration, rhythm and harmony. It follows the rhythms of life, the heartbeat and breath, as a Divine Art. Rhythmic dancing, whirling, poetry and chanting of religious texts combine to induce an ecstatic state, at the climax of which the participant 'may see God'. It is a joyful celebration of the Divine and of universal oneness.

Sufis have carried a tradition of ecstatic dances throughout centuries using music, rhythmic dancing, the breath, whirling, soulful melodies, poetry and sung spiritual instructions.

This compilation presents sufi music and dances from Iran, Turkey, Australia and Pakistan.
