Through Love-Live in India
Since I know Sultan Khan and Mohammad Eghbal it has been my wish to sing with them together, knowing that some divine music would be the result. How delighted I was when Sultan agreed to visit us in Goa to play with us. As I had expected the connection between Mohammad and Sultan was of immediate and sincere warmth. We all felt that we are connected through the same spirit of love and devotion to the ONE GOD. No wonder that singing and playing together catapulted us into another dimension of existence. Some days later Sultan Khan called me from Bombay inviting us to be part of his Sufi-concert at the international Mumbai Festival and to play another charity concert for the victims of the Tsunami... later we found us on stage in front of the Gate of India, it was all an unbelievable scenery and made a deep impression on us. The most touching thing was how loving and supporting Sultan Khan was to all of us. It was truly a blessing to share this with him and all the musicians. The atmosphere was filled with warmth and respect. We all felt that we were brought together from different parts of the world through a higher force - to unite in the spirit of understanding beyond religion, culture and race and yet being connected to all that our ancestors brought to us. And finally - after 25 years of singing the holy songs of different traditions in order to create peace and understanding - I felt that my vision was coming true with the help of this wonderful people. This idea of overcoming separation through devotional music was what drew Sultan Khan almost 15 years ago towards me.
