Synopsis

Album Description
This CD exemplifies both the aethetic and the consciousness altering qualities of the Sufi musical tradition. Soaring improvisations on the Ney flude, Oud lute, and sacred vocal hymns accompany Zhikrs, which are the trance-inducing, repetitive chanting of God's names. The incomparable intensity and spiritual depth of the music will encourage both contemplative listening and meditation.

Beautiful production

"I have had this CD for at least 7 years and continue to listen to it with regular frequency. It is due to this CD that I continue to browse Amazon for Turkish Zikr and Sufi Music. I've shared it with my family and colleagues all of which admire it greatly. For those interested in Turkish, Sufi Music or New Age World music, I would say this an essential part of your collection."

The Divine Breath

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of the many recordings of Sufi dhikrs, this is probably the best one to support the practice of rhythmic breathy exclamations, known to be efficacious via oxygenation and concentration. The solo voice of Sufi shaikh and clincal professor Orüj Guvenc and choral voices are accompanied by ud, ney, rebab, saz, and bendir instruments. The intimate recording differs from concerts of Turkish Mevalana groups The recording is infectious and our own breathing is tracked with the repetitious phrases. The somewhat slow pace and soft voicing is characteristic of Turkish and Syrian Sufi music. Above this ground soars the song of the ney flute. This powerful recording is worth a search to obtain a copy."
