Smith & Dragoman’s debut album titled Open the Gates, is a 20 track album, released in 2004. It focuses on the life of the Bab and His followers, and takes the listener on a journey of courage, faith, crisis and victory. It is a soul-stirring and rich blend of Middle Eastern, African and Western instruments and melodies.

Is there a CD version of the album available to purchase anywhere?
