“We came to earth to unite, not to separate.”
- Jalâl ad-Dîn Rûmî
The Secret Ensemble represents unity. Led by Turkish baglama master Coskun Karademir, this group brings together musicians who are experts in their respective fields, playing Anatolian Sufi music and incorporating influences from their own home region. In 2016, the ensemble released the album Kuslarin Çagrisi (Call of the Birds), featuring the wonderful voice of Iranian Mahsa Vahdat. The album received a lot of attention and was selected by Songlines magazine as a ‘Top of the World Album’. Far from any religious or cultural barriers, this music celebrates, in Persian and Turkish, the peace and meeting of souls that the miraculous experience of existence offers.
