Falling into a deep trance through the soul

Sufi Soul (Échos Du Paradis) is a World compilation of Sufi sounds, made by Network Medien label, a German label with focus on world music, set up in 1979 and run by Christian Scholze.

This is a culturally and geographically diverse compilation of music taken from all corners of the Islamic world. There are songs on this compilation from West and North Africa, Turkey, across the Middle East, Iran, and Central Asia to Pakistan. 

Sufism is the mystical (but not monastic) branch of Islam; for hundreds of years, Sufis have used music in religious ritual (Sama) for ecstatic dance to achieve a state of trance. This is really some of the first trance music in history.
