Ridvan videos in separate languages

Most of the languages are also available as separate videos. Please see below an example of one in English.

A special thanks Larry Magee who played the guitars and to Jarome Matthew for editing all the languages and making sure they were mixed and mastered to sound alike. I’m also extremely grateful to Adeeb Afshar for sharing several of his beautiful photos from the Ridvan garden and also Shira Trick for her lovely video of the fountain.  If you listen closely at the end of the video, you can hear a slight trickle of the water flowing from the fountain.
