- Series Description
Sound And Spirit is a weekly series of hour-long radio programs exploring the human spirit through music and ideas.The program blends classical, traditional and world musics with myth and history, stories and poetry, and commentary from composers, theologians and writers, to provide insight into various aspects of the human experience. Each week the program explores connections between world cultures and examines different approaches to universal questions.
- Program Description
The passionate, and at times even erotic, poetry of Sufi mystics has inspired a remarkable variety of Islamic religous music. Host Ellen Kushner presents a program that ranges from the chanting that accompanies the dervishes' dance trance to the gospel-like improvisations of the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, "the James Brown of Pakistan." She speaks with author/translator Shaikh Kabir Helminsky about Sufi practice. Catch up with Sufism's effects on some Western musicians, too.
