Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Seattle, USA with Shay Morris-Doty and Olivia Rahbin singing “O Hijo del Hombre (O Son of Man)” in both Spanish and English, and based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
