Summary

Summary

This excellent two-CD set compiles 15 tracks recorded live at the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music in Fes, Morocco. Established in 1994 by an organization dedicated to artistic preservation, international cooperation, and other humanitarian causes as a way to establish common ground among people of diverse cultures, the Fes Festival has gained attention as one of the world's premiere musical events. Listening to these CDs, it's easy to see why, as artists from Morocco, India, Indonesia, Europe, and the Middle East come together in celebration of musical spirituality. Whether it's Amina Alaoui's hypnotic vocals on the opening track or the trance-like repetition of the Whirling Dervishes of Konya's 39-minute closer, it's the thread of worshipful spirituality that ties these heavenly tracks together. ~ Bret Love
