Another Octave of Creativity: Music

Wasalamalaikum, I finally have found the time to explore Music: the first form of spirituality that I consciously observed as a child. The mysterious beauty and invisible nature of Music captivated me and directly made me contemplate on The Creator’s Majesty. I still am amazed by Music that is an expression of Wisdom, its language and affinity with Love, its lessons on Surrender, on connectedness and on Remembrance of the Palace we inhabited aforetime… I revere the high purpose of Music. I can appreciate all genres that serve this purpose of awakening within us.

I recently started to develop songs that my paintings let escape… Al hamdulillah, I revel in the continued phase of Arts, I do experience them as one endeavor… Everywhere we look, there is Music, the sight of the Creation itself is Music, our movements, pulse, spiritual emotions are music… there is no way to remove these harmonious sounds of the Sound from our lives. In my African cultures, Music is the very fiber of life, it accompanies our development from birth to transition unto the other World.

InshAllah my first album will be available sometime this year. In the meantime, I’m sharing excerpts of two songs “She, the Black Light” and “Marundu’s Thousand Veils”.

Thank you to all those who came to the NYU exhibition, it was a pleasure to meet all of you.

    Asalaamu alaikum.

    I SO want your album! This is beautiful. One of the things that I really like about your art is how you combine different forms of media and how they interact/supplement each other. This is just another cool addition to that wonderful style you have.

    BTW, you’d better promote the album in the IAS, you know. 🙂

  2. Salaams Aaminah, thank you, I’m glad you like the Music so far 🙂 I hope to release the album by the end of the year inshAllah.

  3. Beautiful, masha’Allah! What instruments are those?

  4. Salaams & welcome Musicalchef (interesting screen name) the instruments I mainly use are Ngombi and African percussions.
