Falsa

14th Century Sufi Chamber Fusion Ensemble

14th century Sufi music, described as a "cure for alienation" and one that's "not about means to ends but about meaning and transcendence". The effect of listening to Falsa is to be transported both inwards and across centuries of joys, sorrows and longings.

Umer Piracha on Vocals, accompanied by Siddharth Ashokkumar on Carnatic Violin, Tom Deis and Paul Arendt on Guitars/Harmonium, Adam Hershberger on Trumpet, and Greg Foran on Percussion. To listen, please Click Here.
