Alif Records / Krian Music Group
PRESENTS “LOVE IS MY RELIGION”

BUY NOW:  Media Store

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.

 

“Tekbilek’s music has a beauty and elegance that few can match, it’s gorgeously recorded, with numerous collaborators, and it demonstrates once again not only the amazing talent of the man but also his heart.”
Cyclic Defrost / Australia
“While Tekbilek’s music itself is not overtly political, the symbolism of uniting what may at first seem like disparate musical styles and instruments provides an example that we could all do well to follow.”
Santa Barbara Independent
