Just released: Sami Yusuf’s new composition ‘I Have Come Alive’ recorded live at the Dubai EXPO as part of his ‘Beyond the Stars’ concert. The lyrics are from a famous poem by the Sufi poet Jalal al-Din Rumi that speaks of the spiritual joy of dying to the limited self and being reborn into the unlimited ocean of existence.
This brand new, multi-layered composition fills the air with intoxicating melodies and dynamic rhythms. Lyrics are sung in the original Persian as well as in English, Turkish, and Arabic. The composition displays a depth of musical imagination that carries the poem’s mystical meaning straight to the heart of the listener.
Sami Yusuf delivers a stunning performance as he is joined by featured artists Seyed Ali Jaberi in a powerful tanbur solo, and Nabyla Maan, who adds an Andalusian flavour with a riveting mawwal.
