 With the world often seeming in a dark and challenging place

the songs on our album 'Finding a Way Through' observe,

engage with the contemporary and highlight the positive.

 A thoughtful and melodic companion to contemporary living...

TURBULENT TIMES

 

Some perspective on political turmoil -

from the early 19th century to the 2007 banking crisis.

Times can be tough but history shows that progress can follow.

 

'Sometimes you're gonna live in turbulent times...

Sometimes you're gonna grow through turbulent times.'

 

 

THE BALLAD OF

AKBAR AND AURANGZEB

(For a progressive and tolerant Islam - a lesson from history)

 

'The future must be with Muslims like Akbar,

In our world of the coming century;

And let's hope that Aurangzebi Muslims

Can find a way to love humanity...'

'What a fantastic subject and way to think about Islam today'

-Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, commentator and founder member of British Muslims for Secular Democracy

 'Keep up the great work'

Raheel Raza, Muslims Facing Tomorrow, Toronto

 'A nice gentle dig at the extremists - unlikely to make the ISIS playlist!'

 

GLOBAL RHYTHM

 

'One day we could be dancing

Dancing to the global beat;

Everybody dancing together

Everybody up on their feet...'

 

' Yes, we're going to build the common good. Ride on. Shelley lives, Byron lives, Keats lives, Marley lives.

The revolution is not dead. The race is not for the swift, but for those who can endure'.
