46 A Cappella Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions (Voice Only)

July 20, 2022, in Articles > Music, by

With hundreds of Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions recorded around the world so far, I thought it might be useful to share all the a cappella songs we’ve published; meaning, all the songs where the human voice is the only instrument used.

In case you are unfamiliar with Baha’i Blog’s Studio Sessions series, it’s an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends in different parts of the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
