A trio of mystical musicians.
Ruhaani explore the threads that connect Sufi folk music traditions and both North and South Indian classical music. They draw on the mystical song forms of Qawwali, Nasheed, and Nath creating their own unique arrangements. Lead singer Sarah ‘The Sufi’ Yaseen is a versatile musician with a soulful voice and zeal for the preservation of Sufi poetry and music. Vijay Venkat is a multi-genre performer and composer who trained under some of the greatest maestros of Carnatic music in India. Associate Artist John Ball holds a deep-seated passion for Indian classical music, driving rhythms on the Indian tabla drum and the 100-stringed Kashmiri santoor.
