Baha’i Blog Presents “Studio Sessions” – A New Series on our YouTube Channel

As someone who’s had the opportunity to travel a whole lot over the years, I’ve had the fortune of attending a variety of different Baha’i-related gatherings around the world, and one of the things I’ve enjoyed immensely is being able to listen to songs performed by members of these various communities, who have been moved to put the Sacred Baha’i Writings to music.

I’ve always wished others could hear these songs, and so now we’ve started what we call Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” in order to share some of these beautiful compositions with the rest of the world. In this new series of videos found on our YouTube Channel, we invite individuals or groups to come into the studio to perform a song or two while we record and film it.

In our very first Studio Session episode, we start things off in Sydney, Australia, with a song called “What A Power Is Love” performed by sisters Shireen and Carmel Zein.

We want these songs to serve as a resource for you and your community, so you can find the song lyrics — meaning the Baha’i Writings used — and the chords to the song in the text below the video on our YouTube Channel. You can also download the audio version of the song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page too!

We hope you enjoy this new series, and please subscribe to Baha’i Blog’s YouTube Channel to get updates on new Baha’i-inspired videos like this one and more.
