Journey through the Celtic year with the Sufi mystic Rumi and award-winning Nova Scotia poet Lodaidh MacFhionghain (Lewis MacKinnon). MacFhionghain’s rich baritone is accompanied by Persian, Irish, and Scottish Gaelic traditional and spiritual melodies played by Wayne MacIntyre on acoustic guitar and Saeed Foroughi on hammered dulcimer, setar, harp, and flute.
Two-thirds of the poems in this collection are his translations of the poems of Rumi as interpreted by Coleman Barks, and the other one-third are original poems by the author. Spanning two and one-half hours, this audiobook will transport you to another realm.
The Bandcamp digital download also contains bonus spoken word tracks without music for Gaelic learners. Buy it on Friday, March 5 and support the Gaelic arts in Nova Scotia!
