Baha’i Blog Interviews Ali Youssefi

May 13, 2021, in Videos > Interview, by

In this Baha’i Blog interview, Leyla Tavernaro-Haidarian speaks with singer-songwriter Ali Youssefi.

Ali Youssefi is a musician whose songs move the heart. You may be familiar with his global musical initiatives “Unite”, or his most recent song “Waves”. In this interview, he and Leyla talk about the process of putting those songs and music videos together and then, more broadly, about the role an artist or musician can play in building community.

Ali was also critical in helping us film Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions in Belgrade, Serbia (where he was living at the time), and from these sessions you can watch him singing “Jedinstvo (Unity)” in Serbian, and “Oh Mi Siervo (O My Servant)” in Spanish.

You can hear more about Leyla from when she was featured on the Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson: Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 8: Leyla & Ryan Haidarian
