ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sufi Moon is a fusion of Qawwali Music and Alphorns, composed of three swiss jazz musicians and two pakistani qawwals. One of the more interesting musical performances at the Sufi Soul World Music Festival in Lahore, Pakistan, the Sufi Moon project explores the spiritual symbolism of the moon, which Anna Grichting sees as "a universal symbol as well as the symbol of Islam - the crescent." The Swiss group was first exposed to subcontinental Sufi philosophy three years ago and "Sufi Moon" was created with Pakistani qawwal Sher Miandad Khan and tabla nawaz, Waris Ali Balu Khan, whom they met at the first Sufi Soul Festival in 2000. The fusion has also been performed during the Urs at Pakpattan (the yearly celebrations that take place in the sufi shrine on the birth date of the saint) and at venues across Switzerland and the Penjab. Jean-Jacques Pedretti and Robert Morgenthaler's wonderful bass performances, mostly with wind instruments, (the trombone, alphorn and didgeridoo and conch shells), were complemented by the rhythm of Balu Khan's tabla and the spiritual voices of Anna Grichting and Sher Miandad Khan, and their performance left the audience enthralled.
