- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
The Baha’i Remix Project is a new project currently in progress and created by Daniel Badi Rinaldi.
Here’s what Daniel has to say about it:
The Baha’i community around the world has produced beautiful music throughout the decades. Some of it has been recorded and many generations have benefitted from these songs. Many people have memorized prayers or quotes because they learned them through song. Despite the timelessness of the words, the music itself tends to fade away with time, even when the music is just amazing!
My goal with this project is to revive songs by remixing them through the lens of hip-hop, EDM, or whatever medium works and sounds good. My hope is to reintroduce these songs to newer generations who might gain a deeper appreciation for the original song after hearing it remixed. That is my personal experience when I listen to most remixes. This project might also evoke nostalgia for those who are already familiar with the original songs.
I want to invite other talented producers to contribute to this project. Choose one or a few songs that have inspired you over the years, remix it with your flavor within the bounds of decency and reverence, submit it to me to see if it can be published under this project, and then we go about getting permission from the song’s rights holder.
“Blessed is the Spot” is the first single and I have more in store that will be released with the album when it’s ready. The release of the entire album will depend on how fast I can finish up the other songs and/or how quickly other producers arise to collaborate.
I also invite the general audience to submit ideas for songs that you think should be remixed.
With much musical love,
– Daniel Badi Rinaldi
