Baha’i Blog’s “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.

The Friends in Chicago are: Jeremy, Adeeb, Anahita, Danika, and Savva.

This song was filmed and recorded in Chicago, USA, December, 2018.
