New Live Album – OUT NOW!

Posted on August 2nd, 2021

Sami Yusuf’s latest album, ‘Live at the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music’, is now available. The refined, sophisticated compositions immerse the listener in the rich musical language of traditions from Morocco, Andalusia, Turkey, and across the Arabic-speaking world. This 16-track album features brilliant performances by an international ensemble of master instrumentalists along with a renowned Moroccan vocal group all under the direction of the composer. These are new compositions as well as completely new arrangements of previously released works.

2019, the year of this live recording, was Sami’s second time headlining the prestigious Fes Festival; the first time was 2009, joining the ranks of earlier headliners such as Ravi Shankar, Paco de Lucia, Youssou N’Dour, Joan Baez, Björk, and Ben Harper. The musician’s special love for this land is evident in the works heard here, and this album delivers all the magic of the live performance that held the Fes audience spellbound.
