43 Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions Songs Based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah

September 5, 2017, in Articles > Music, by

In honour of the Bicentenary of the anniversary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah, we thought we’d showcase all of our Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions whose lyrics are based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah — and there are currently 43 of them! To celebrate the world embracing vision of Baha’u’llah, we’ve begun with those songs in a variety languages other than English, then we showcase all the Studio Sessions in English based on The Hidden Words, those based on quotations from Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, and finally, those that sing prayers revealed by Baha’u’llah.

You can find out more about Studio Session here, watch the Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions series here on our YouTube Channel, and listen and download the songs from our Soundcloud playlist.
