Album The Silk Road: A Musical Caravan

Like silk and spices, Muslim spirituality traveled across Asia, carried by Sufis and itinerant dervishes. Under the Ottomans, Istanbul became a meeting place of Sufis traveling from east to west. In Turkish, spiritual songs like this one are called ilahi, and can be performed alone or, as in this case, within a zikr. (During, Levin 2001)
