This is the last day of the Baha’i festival of Ridvan and I wanted to share a gift of music with you to celebrate this joyous occasion.
We’ve been working on many songs from my different projects. Although I haven’t released any Baha’i inspired songs lately, I’ve been working on several of them. In the last couple of years I’ve been composing songs for a CD on the theme of detachment and am waiting to finish my current projects before I start working on recording these new songs. However, this particular piece I’m working on, ‘My Love is My Stronghold’, is being contributed to a new CD entitled ‘Music for Devotions’ that will be released very soon. Now that we’re working in person more, Jarome and I were able to work on the cello part together and I’m pleased he was able to produce the song for this project. Cello was performed by Yoad Nir.
I particularly like this passage from Baha’u’llah as it reminds me of how love is like a fortress and how our love for God is our protection. It’s also a wonderful reminder not to get caught up with the distractions of life as that becomes perilous for our souls and our growth. I would love to hear what it means to you.
You can listen to the song below and can download it on the gifts page.

Dearest Elika, the words, the melody, the harmony made my heart race! Thank you for this gift.
Dear Elika, Thanks so much for the beautiful song and your heavenly voice. Last week when I was preparing the program for our Ridvan gathering I was looking for a song and was thinking that we really need more Ridvan songs. Thanks for your services
