“Surah Yaseen with Bagpipes”
“The Baghdad Pipes”
I promised everyone something amazing yesterday. A song that would surprise you and maybe even make you a bit upset. I don’t know unsettled or mad. However, I want you to just listen to the mixing of these cultures.
The name of this song is “Yasin” and the music behind it is Celtic.
If this upsets you, I’m sorry. I am also a kind of musical purist too, but I know beauty when I hear it. This proves to me a million times over that cultures would work together if they only had a real chance without religion and politics. Music can indeed bring people together.
I’m not going to claim that I am the first to put these two styles together, but I haven’t heard of anything like this yet.
Baghdad Pipes or Baghpipes
I came up with this by listening to choir music for Christmas and then “Surah Yasin” came on and I wanted to change it because it was not “my” music, but the more I listened the more I thought the voice sounded like a baghpipe. (<— misspelled on accident , but I’m keeping it.) Of course, I didn’t know what the lyrics, but I just listened to the sounds of his voice and I knew I heard an amazing style of World Music. Turns out, I like this baghpipe sound and am listening to it still.
