Christian and Muslim holy texts come together

On a journey to Lahore in Pakistan Norwegian folksinger Sondre Bratland met the renowned Qawwali singer Javed Bashir. Together they performed psalms and hymns from their different religious traditions in mosques in Pakistans old cultural capital. We recorded this convergence between Christian and Muslim holy texts. Later Javed Bashir came to Norway and made several recordings with Sondre in two Norwegian churches.
