The Divine on the Dancefloor, the Breath in the Beat: Sufi-Inspired Turkish Master Omar Faruk Tekbilek Remixed for Rare Elements.
The divine is everywhere, in the breath of a reed flute, the clank and hum of machines, or the slammin’ beats of an electronic track. This is Turkish virtuoso Omar Faruk Tekbilek’s message, and he hears it everywhere. Now new sides of Tekbilek’s Sufi-inspired songs and compositions jump out on Rare Elements
