“Abdu’l-Baha” by Dominique, Solomzi, Semere & Rosemary

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 Mahikeng, South Africa with Dominique, Solomzi, Semere and Rosemary singing “Abdu’l-Baha”, a cover of the song originally by Steve, Denzil & Ephrim Aumua from the Heroes Teaching Conference in Brisbane, Australia.

This song was filmed and recorded in Mahikeng, South Africa, November, 2021.
