American Sufi Project
Release Date: June 15, 2015
Recorded, Mix and Mastered by: Phil Duke
Vol. 1 is American Sufi Project’s inaugural music album. It features New York-based musicians performing traditional Sufi compositions blended with their native Jazz sensibilities. In these recordings you can hear instruments such as the Ney, Kemenche, Frame Drums, Fretless Electric Guitar and U Bass. Imbued with subtle ornamentation and striving improvisations, this music
transmits the essence of the devotional practices in the Sufi tradition. And with a touch of Jazz, there is a sense of East-meets-West that contemporizes the music and makes this album truly American.
