What Stirs the Soul
While we were creating art for The Illuminated Hafiz, we often had music playing in the background. The electrifying sound of Rhiannon Giddens’ voice and her resonant banjo and the deep harmonies of The Illumination Band and their American Roots music seemed to really capture the mood of loss and longing that permeates much of Sufi poetry and music of the Middle East and Southeast Asia. It turns out that they have a common origin in what’s called the blue note scale.

With the amazing Rebecca Hoffberger, founder, director and principal curator of the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) in Baltimore at the opening of The Great Mystery on October 6, 2017.
