Songs, Chants and Prayers of Ancient Syria February 26, 2015
The news out of Syria is grim: ISIS is advancing, the death toll is rising, refugees are fleeing. But this week, we're going to recall the Syria that came before all that. Historically, it’s been a deeply spiritual country, full of Sufi Muslims and Orthodox Christians, whose songs and prayers represent some of the most beautiful examples of religious music in the world. Jason Hamacher recorded some of these sounds, just months before the civil war erupted. From October 2014.
