During my first year in China I fell in love with the end-blown bamboo flute called the xiao. This recording features the xiao and many other beautiful flutes from around the world and I would very much like to share it with you. The CD is a collection of meditative music with sung and spoken prayers and texts from the Bahá´í Writing. The other instruments featured are the cedarwood flute, quena (Peruvian wooden flute), bansuri (Bamboo flute of India), tenor and soprano saxophones, bass clarinet, rain sticks (from Brazil and Chile), Taoist meditation bowls from China, Tibetan cymbals, African wooden chimes, wind caller, Mexican frame drum, djembe (African drum), voice, low multiphonic voice, streams, waterfalls and rain–all recorded live.
All compositions are by me, except for Alláhumma, Yá Subbúh, and Yá Quddús by Bijan Khadem-Missagh (my arrangement).
In total there are 16 total tracks. If you would like to order this album, let me know! It was produced in the U.S.A. Contact me for more information.
