December 15, 2020, in Music > Studio Session, by

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.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Durban, South Africa with the Durban Baha’i Choir singing “Where There Is Love (Lapho kukhona uthando)” in English and Zulu, based on the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha.

This song was filmed and recorded in Durban, South Africa, November 2018. Music written by Andy and Aijia Grammar, and this version arranged by the Durban Baha’i Choir.
