Storyline

Sufi Soul: The Mystic Music of Islam, documents the many musical subcultures of Sufism as it was incorporated by different cultures in different regions. With many comparisons to Christianity, it displays how with all religions there are zealots and passivists, and the Sufi's of Islam are passivists who focus primarily on music as a spiritual expression, much like the Christian troubadour or modern Christian Rock churches.
