Baha’i Blog Interviews Ali Youssefi

In this Baha’i Blog interview, Leyla Tavernaro-Haidarian speaks with singer-songwriter Ali Youssefi.

Ali Youssefi is a musician whose songs move the heart. You may be familiar with his global musical initiatives “Unite”, or his most recent song “Waves”. In this interview, he and Leyla talk about the process of putting those songs and music videos together and then, more broadly, about the role an artist or musician can play in building community.
