"... music is the language of beauty, the language of the One whom every living soul has loved." -- Hazrat Inayat Khan
"Sing a song of Glory and you will be the Glory" -- Sufi SAM (Ahmed Murad Chisti)

Music has been a vehicle for the expression of Sufi mystical experience for centuries. Our choir, a successor to Allaudin Mathieu's original Sufi Choir, and based in Sonoma County, was active on a regular cycle of rehearsing and performing from 1994 to 2005. It was our joy to sing this music together and share it with others, and we were blessed to be able to sing at numerous West Coast Sufi events, to make several concert tours and to record many of those concerts live (view photos).

The choir produced and released two CD's of our best music, mostly from those concert recordings – and the rest recorded at the studios of Joe Hoffman, engineer par excellence. Now, a decade later, we have chosen to make the songs available online here as a gift. In the spirit of reciprocity, we accept donations in return, which will go toward the building of Murshid SAM's shrine, his Dargah, in New Mexico. DONATE HERE
