128 Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions Based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha

As this year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of Abdu’l-Baha, we thought we’d highlight all of our Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions that put excerpts from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha to music. To date we’ve released 128 Studio Session songs based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, and we hope you enjoy them! 

Before we start the list, an honorable mention must go to the Studio Session song called “Abdu’l-Baha” by Dominique, Solomzi, Semere & Rosemary, which is not on this list because it is not based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, but it’s a cover of the song “Abdu’l-Baha” by Denzil, Ephrim and Steve Aumua, performed at the Heroes Teaching Conference in Brisbane, Australia.
