“Voices of the Spirit”

We welcome to the Geary Studio two of the artists who will appear on the third annual Voices of the Spirit concert of world-wide sacred music, presented by the Houston Arts Alliance.  Singer and oud master Zubair Al-Awady performs Sufi songs from the traditions of the mystical branch of Islam, and African vocalist and guitarist Melloh Rhythm shares examples of the types of praise songs that are popular in Christian communities in his native land of Nigeria.
