This documentary explores Sufism and its music in different parts of the Islamic world, including Syria, Turkey, Pakistan and Morocco.

I hesitated a little before posting this to the Common Sense blog. When you click on the link you will be brought to the “We Love Music” web site but also an ad will appear. You can click on the “skip this ad” in the upper right corner of the window to go directly to the post. Sorry for the inconvenience but the DVD looks very nice. If I get a copy I will review it here.
