Album Notes
“Rumi Remembered II - Come to the Orchard” is Garo and Friends’ second album which is entirely dedicated to English version poetry of Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi. As with the first CD “Rumi Remembered – Inspiration”, this CD is another invitation and an ode to remember the great thirteenth century poet, mystic and spiritual teacher. Rumi’s poetry provides timeless wisdom which resonates just as validly and effectively today as it did eight centuries ago. His popularity in this century around the world with diverse cultures and faith groups is not a coincidence. His teachings of love without boundaries, unity of life, humility and devotion invites us to take a closer look at our social, political problems with a different point of view. His invitation to make peace with ourselves and the world that surrounds us an ultimate goal through Love.

The Album is simply a continuation of the first one. It contains ten songs; nine in English and one in Turkish. All songs, as in the first one, are composed by Garo Altinian using the English interpretations of Coleman Barks.

Although this album is similar in feel and design to the previous album, this one features additional instruments such as clarinet, charango and piano. Cello, played by Ottawa cellist Joan Harrison, has a dominant presence in almost every song throughout the CD. There are more instrumental passages and introductions and a steadfast presence of percussion. The result is an upbeat collection of songs designed to take the listener on a journey to the heart.
The musicians on the album are all from Ottawa. They are:
Garo Altinian – Composer, Lead Vocal, Guitars
Joan Harrison – Cello
Lucas Lacerda – Bass Guitar, Charango
Yves Saint-Pierre (Hadi) – Piano, Keyboard, Percussion
Agah Ecevit – Ney (Reed Flute), Clarinet
Lili – Backup Vocals

The album was recorded by Lucas Lacerda, mixed by Kerem Eker and was mastered by Jay Fee at Conduction Mastering Studio in Ottawa.
