“Leap into the fire of this magic music!
Season your soul, open your heart, dance, sing and absorb the passion of an emerging universal and ecstatic sound full of love and respect for all peoples of the world!”
Join us for an ecstatic and rhythmically explosive evening of song and dance from the Sufi Qawaali tradition blended with a twist of Bhangra and driving Aboriginal funk.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Baraka Moon delivers pulsing, soulful and spiritually charged dance music with a positive message of peace for the whole world!
Uniting influences from mystical Sufi trance songs, Indian ragas, African beats and the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo.
Videos from Baraka Moon's new album Wind Horse.
BARAKA MOON is:
Sukhawat Ali Khan - Vocals,
Together they make music that uses Khan’s charismatic qawwali-derived singing as a focal point around which the band builds funky, slinky, bluesy arrangements that draw on multicultural rhythmic and instrumental traditions simultaneously.
The music is tight, expansive, and fun. Fantastic for all world music afficionados. In 2008, Baraka Moon was formed on the night of an eclipse of the full moon; “Baraka” is the Sufi word for “blessing.”
The band creates original music with roots based in Qawaali Sufi trance songs, Indian, Middle Eastern, and African drums and percussion, plus the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo, all mixed together in one gloriously expressive and positive whole designed to uplift listeners.
Concert tickets will be available online at ShowTix4u.com more than a month in advance of the event.
