This is one of my favorite reviews of Glimmerings so far, written by Michael Diamond. I especially enjoyed reading the third paragraph in which he links my music and inspiration with my beliefs as a Baha’i. He writes: “Yet with all the various geographic influences that inform her creative process, perhaps the greatest inspiration in her life and music is her spirituality. As a member of the Bahá’í Faith, her essential message is one of unity. The Bahá’í teachings emphasize that all of us, as creations of one God, are part of one human family. Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the nature and purpose of life and of the future of society. With a spiritual foundation based on principles such as these, it is no surprise that Elika’s approach to music is so inclusive.”
Michael then goes on to eloquently describe the music and he perfectly understands the story that I was trying to tell with the titles on the CD. Below is the first few paragraphs of the review. Please click here to read Michael Diamond’s full review of Glimmerings.
