Yale International Choral Festival

June 2018 saw us step onto the stage of the Yale International Choral Festival, upon invitation by the Yale Alumni choir; an honour and challenge in one, as we slipped into musical renditions amidst participating musical bodies from across the world and under the distinguished eye of Yale.

Tapping into the warmth, the soul and the essence of Islamic music, we delivered performances nothing short of pure, authentic musical artistry and unbridled faith, alongside the choral strong-suits of Mexico, Germany and New York, as well as the Yale Alumni choir.

Drawing on a warm welcome by the audience, who had previously never borne witness to a genre of such powerful entrancement, we performed repertoires brimming with devotional praise, from naats to hamds and from baiths to Sufi-style qawaalis.
