"estatic power...building slowly and steadily to a fever pitch" -NY Times "a remarkable group with an extraordinary history" -BBC World Service Sufism, the peaceful, universal and mystic tradition of Islam has for centuries intrigued the world's musical and spiritual communities. Sidi Goma group sing and dance for their Sufi saints, using chants (in a mixture of Swahili, Hindi, and Gujerati languages), shakers, conches and drums decorated with peacock feathers. Tracing their ancestral lineage to East Africa (Tanzania and Kenya) and to their special saint Sidi Mubarak Nobia, they live in western India in a closed community.
