Overview

Passionate and vividly ecstatic, sufi music seems like a philosophical and mystical antidote to the harsher aspects of Islam, and at its best, tackles the themes of sex, love, and death with a wild and refreshing humanity. This Rough Guide quick survey of sufi music was put together by William Dalrymple and it explores traditional forms as well as modern artists expanding on that tradition, with approaches that bridge the east and the west. Musicians from Turkey, Syria, Senagal, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are represented and a second disc covering the musical history of the Sufi Fakirs of Bengal is also included, making this a great introduction to the wild and fascinating world of sufi music.
