ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ecstatic and rhythmically explosive album of music from the Sufi Qawaali tradition blended with a twist of Bhangra and Aboriginal funk.

A Listener Review (from Amazon):
“Baraka Moon is a global fusion band known for their exciting trance-dance music and rhythms based on Pakistani Sufi and other Hindustani tunes. Members Sukhawat Ali Khan (vocals, harmonium), Stephen Kent (didjeridu, percussion, bass), Anastasi Mavrides (guitar, vocals), the late Geoffrey Gordon (voice, tabla and frame drums), and Peter Warren (drums, djembe) produced a more direct, more pure devotional Sufi and Hindu EP album while maintaining their characteristic styling. Two of the tracks are reprised for this collection, dedicated to original member Gordon. Kent's earthy didgeridu grounds the music, the harmonium provides, well, harmony and melody, the guitar ornaments, and the drums drive the entire ensemble. Sukhawat Ali's amazing sweet voice (he the son of vocal raga master, Salamat Ali Khan) soars. Juley Juley is a happy Hindi salutation. Jai Radhe Shyam, recorded with Gordon, is a Hindu devotion to the consort of Krishna, Shyam. Allah Hoo is perhaps the most well-known Sufi devotion that has different melodies across the planet; the Pakistani Punjabi one here is the most familiar. Track 4 is a live recording, an example of the group's art before an audience. Zikr, the concluding track with Gordon, is part of the Sufi rite; whereas the sama-a is motivated listening to hymns, the zikr is the practice, the joining, with holotropic breathing, head or body movement, and mantric repetitions. Listening to the entire album is a highly spiritual...”

BARAKA MOON:
Sukhawat Ali Khan - Vocals, Harmonium
Stephen Kent - Didgeridoo, percussion
Anastasi Mavrides - Guitar
Peter Warren - Drums

Baraka Moon's all original music ignites from the ancient Qawaali Sufi trance songs, Indian classical ragas, Middle Eastern overtones and African percussion, plus the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo.

Sukhawat Ali Khan's energetic music signature springs from ancient traditions. Sukhawat is the 12th generation of an unbroken lineage of master Pakistani and Indian vocalists. He can blend classical North Indian and Pakistani music into spellbinding cross-cultural ragas. Sukhawat’s thrilling voice comes straight from the heart, and he can wail on the harmonium like a blues harp.

Stephen Kent is acknowledged as one of the contemporary world's pioneer virtuosos on the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo. During a twenty-year career with the didgeridoo, Stephen has developed an approach that is unmistakably his own, exploring a remarkable range of musical genres. He has twenty critically acclaimed CD’s, including five solo releases to his credit.

Peter Warren and Anastasi Mavrides bring their distinctive melodic and driving dance elements to the mix. Peter is a world music drummer who has performed with musicians from West Africa, India, and Pakistan for over 20 years. Guitarist, Anastasi is a musician and producer of many musical styles and media. He performs in several Bay Area world music ensembles and has toured with the Beach Boys
