SUFI MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE! "MADHA MORISCO" by Al Firdaus Ensemble

Mawlid Mubarak Everyone!

I just wanted to share with you a music video I directed for Al Firdaus Ensemble, an amazing group of international musicians that play a mix of Andalusian, Flamenco, and Syrian/Turkish Sufi music. I had the pleasure of shooting this video for them in Andalusia, Spain back in spring.  It's been a labour of love and… well, HERE IT IS! PLEASE SHARE WIDELY :-)

 P.S. Wajd is bubbling with new inspiration at this point...
