Endless Path: Sufis’ spiritual journey recorded in utter darkness meets Turkish audience

An album recorded in utter darkness to capture the spiritual journey of Sufi Muslims comes to light in front of a Turkish audience on Tuesday.

Recorded at the Emanuel Vigeland Museum atop a hill in the Norwegian capital Oslo, the "Endless Path" is the joint work of Iranian artist Mahsa Vahdat and Turkish musician Coşkun Karademir.

The album was recorded in a special concept to capture the feelings of some of the most important names of Turkish-Islamic thinking, including Rumi and Yunus Emre.

Vahdat and Karademir will perform their music before Turkish audience for the first time on Oct. 9 at Istanbul's Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall in Şişli district.

The duo will be joined by Özer Özel on yaylı tambur – a bowed long-necked lute – Ömer Arslan on percussion and Mehdi Teimoori on ney.

"Endless Path" received great interest and many praises from music authorities in Europe, including titles of "the album of the year."
