The Sanctuary

I'm thrilled to return to the ensemble of The Conference of the Birds:  the most metal a capella journey of the soul seeking union with the Divine.  Composed by Fahad Siadat with a libretto by Sholeh WolpĂ©, the work utilizes virtuosic musical techniques found in singing styles across the globe. 

The story follows the birds of the world who embark on a journey to find their sovereign, Simorgh, a divine/mythical creature. Led by the wise Hoopoe they travel through Seven Valleys, each a spiritual realm of understanding that unfolds as they journey toward Simorgh's sanctuary. The libretto is drawn from Sufi mystic poet Attar's seminal text.

"Peace is a competition between despair and hope, between disempowerment and committed persistence. To the degree that powerlessness takes root in people's consciousness, there is a greater tendency to resort to force. Powerlessness breeds violence."  - Daisaku Ikeda
