About

The album Divine Love completes the trilogy Poem of a Cell. Vol.1 interprets excerpts of the Song of Songs from the Hebrew Bible, Vol.2 deals with the love poems of the Christian nun Mechthild of Magdeburg. Vol.3 transforms theses after Rabi’a of Basra into sounds and music and presents as a matching counterpart arrangements of Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem and Antonio Vivaldi’s Cum dederit. Rabi’a of Basra lived around 714 and 801 and is known as a Muslim saint and Sufi mystic. She was the first one who expounded the doctrine of Divine Love: “All love aims at the essence of unity. The highest love aims at eternal unity. I am searching for my lover, not his splendor of gifts, not visions, miracles and power over the material world.”

The wonderful Zanzibarian singer Saada Nassor celebrates in a duet with qanun player Rajab Suleiman the magic and mysticism of Rabi’a of Basra. Fumio Yasuda’s Eternal Love is the opening track of the album which unfolds a mysterious positive force. On the contrary Battle over Aleppo reflects the greatest of tragedies our times. Poem of a Cell is about desire and spite, longing and disgust, violence and lenity, destruction and salvation, separation and unification, innocence and guilt, permission and suppression, woman and man.
