HuDost and Sophia Unity Foundation are proud to announce the release of the new HuDost single download & video of the song Murshid. This piece was written & produced by Moksha Sommer & Jemal Wade Hines as the theme song for the motion picture documentary My Heart’s Song for which HuDost has written the bulk of the soundtrack.
In writing the song Murshid, Sommer wished to address the type of quest and spiritual seeking that defies the passage of time and is as relevant now as it was when Sufi Master Hazrat Inayat Khan was alive. The song combines her own lyrics and words by Inayat Khan that he wrote to his teacher. Sommer and Hines crafted the arrangement of the song in production to dance around this timeless quality. About the piece, Sommer states, “This work acknowledges that it is in the humble process of seeking the teaching from a master that the teacher within ourselves that was lying dormant awakens.”
Murshid has Moksha on lead & harmony vocals and harmonium, Jemal Wade on guitars & vocals, Linda Worster on harmony vocals, Dan Walters on bass, Chuck Mauk on drums & percussion, Anit Ghosh on violin & viola and Melissa Hyman on cello. JP Durand from the band Incendio beautifully mixed the track as well as extra programming & keyboards. JP & Jemal worked on the string arrangement together. The track was mastered by Dale Becker of Bernie Becker Mastering.
MY HEART’S SONG details the journey of a young man from the velvet prison of a successful family of classical musicians, learning the price necessary —including a broken heart—to find true freedom. Born at a time of great change brought on by technical innovation and in a country reeling from a century of colonial rule bent upon its cultural degradation, Inayat Khan has to learn how to walk on the turbulent waters that have led to global warming and rampant commercialism.
MY HEART’S SONG : The Early Life of Sufi Hazrat Inayat Khan is currently in post production.
