Ensemble AL KINDI, Sheikh Hamza Shakk├╗r

Shaykh Hamza Shakkur, the great Munshid of Damascus, sings the praises of divine love and God's prophet Muhammed in sublime, deep tones, whilst the musicians of the Al-Kindi Ensemble reply to him, alternating subtle flourishes and arabesques with refined preludes. This is how a real session of Sama' proceeds - it is a truly spiritual concert, a dialogue with the angels, where the only distraction from our state of bliss is the rustling of the dervishes' robes.
