The celebrated Baha’i ensemble Smith and Dragoman gave a concert at the U of O last Saturday; it was great. It was the first time I had heard them perform, and I was impressed. The music was good, but what was most powerful was the lyrics. That’s bound to happen when you quote The Dawn-Breakers, of course. It was like reading that beautiful, life-changing book again, delving into the heroic stories of the early believers of the Baha’i Faith, and becoming touched and transformed by their spirit. I took some pictures of the concert; go see ’em in the flickr photoset. You can also listen to an audio clip of Divine Tapestry (one of Smith & Dragoman’s more popular songs).
Note: Smith & Dragoman will be present at the DC Baha’i Youth Congress this weekend… check them out (and buy their CD)!
