An interesting illustrated/illuminated (collaged, most specifically, and as such not really my favorite form of illumination, but still well done) look at the Sufi Salat. Lovely illumination in a modern form, and some commentary on the practice of prayer from our Sufi sisters and brothers.

Coleman Barks reads his translations of Rumi, Hafiz, and Lalla. Some of the readings are accompanied by vocals, pan flute, harmonium bells, and hand drums.

I really enjoy it! Been listening to it over and over for the last couple of days. Barks voice is lovely and the selection of poetry is wonderful.

What I don't like about it is the editing; like for example how there's a sequence with "the last poem of tonight" and a lot of applause just a few minutes in... it sort of shatters the illusion that one is actually listening to a live recital, and it also breaks the flow of the energy build-up... Another thing that I really really dislike is the singing voice of the woman... not enjoyable at all, in my opinion.… (més)
