Sufi Soul (The Mystic Music of Islam) by William Dalrymple

BY Abhishek Mathur | PUBLISHED: 24 July 2016

This extraordinary film by well known writer William Dalrymple documents the many musical subcultures of Sufism as it was incorporated by different cultures in different regions. With many comparisons to Christianity, it displays how with all religions there are zealots and passivists, and the Sufi’s of Islam are passivists who focus primarily on music as a spiritual expression, much like the Christian troubadour or modern Christian Rock churches.
