Hypnotic, unvarnished recordings by one of Pakistan’s most revered and iconic classical singers. The roots of Saami's music go back to the 13th century - but its message is contemporary and universal: “to sing is to listen.” 

"75-year-old, Ustad Saami risks his life daily in Pakistan to keep alive his microtonal, pre-Islamic, multilingual (Farsi, Sanskrit, Hindi, the ancient and dead language of Vedic, gibberish, Arabic, and Urdu) music. Handed down by his ancestors for over a thousand years, he is the only practitioner of Surti left in the world and when he passes, this music will die with him as well. Extremists resent his work as they do anything else pre-dating Muhammad. Master Ustad Naseeruddin Saami has spent his entire life mastering the nuances of every given note."
