Nagore Sessions is a unique musical collaboration featuring Sufi, Indian, Middle Eastern and Western elements. Sufi singers Abdul Ghani, Ajah Maideen and Saburmaideen Babha Sabeer from the Nagore Dargah usually perform at religious and social ceremonies at their sufi shrine in coastal Tamil Nadu (South India).
Earthy Sufi chants meet compelling percussion from the Middle East and contemporary Western instruments, setting the groove on this unique fusion album, which stands as a working example of intercultural understanding and collaboration in these volatile times. Musicians from many different nationalities, faiths and backgrounds came together to share their music cultures with each other and audiences around the world.
EarthSync originally discovered and recorded the Sufi singers for their award-winning audio –visual documentary Laya Project and has now released this full album featuring them and recognized international musicians such as Zohar Fresco, Murad Ali Khan and Patrick Sebag.
