I have been so excited to tell you about a song we have been working on in 6 languages for my upcoming album in honor of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
I so enjoy the blending of different languages with many singers as it brings a sense of joy and unity hearing all the voices in the chorus sing:
‘Ye are all the waves of one sea, ye are all the leaves of one tree’. Very powerful indeed! I got goosebumps listening to it yesterday in the studio!
The inspiring verse in the song, ‘Let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path’, is sung in the following languages: English, Swahili, Spanish, Chinese, Italian and French. Everyone has now sung their parts and we are now finalising the instrumentation for the song. I can’t wait to share it with you.
If you have any thoughts of what we could title this piece, please respond in the comments below. I would love to hear your ideas. The title can either be taken from the verse or the chorus of the song.
My previous two songs recorded in 6 languages are below:
‘Rejoice with exceeding gladness’ from the album ‘The Ancient Beauty’
‘My Beloved’ from the album ‘The Exalted One’
I recently shared a recording of the prayer ‘Remover of Difficulties’ in Arabic and the phrase Yá Allahu’l-Mustaghath for my Patrons. If you’d like to support my music and have access to these pieces plus other recordings, please visit patreon.com/elikamahony
