In his newest release in over five years, acclaimed Sufi Turkish virtuoso Omar Faruk Tekbilek expands his “Mediterranean sound” beyond political, religious and geographic boundaries.
‘Love Is My Religion’ is his 15th release, and is produced by Amotz Plessner & Alex Alessandroni Jr. This album joins together an incredible group of international musicians and world renowned luminary guests such as Yasmin Levy and Idan Raichel.
Omar Faruk applies his unity-in-diversity approach to a collection of songs colored with Middle Eastern flavors with distinct traces of folk, traditional Sufi, flamenco and other contemporary elements.
