Ustad SaamiPakistan Is for the Peaceful

Saami’s been making music (I assume on his rooftop) all his adult life, but it’s only been in the last couple years that he’s had a recording career. This, like his previous album, is a religious microtonal meditation that bears the weight of its meditation on its shoulders. It moves slowly because it’s moving in relation to its divine subject, not its listeners. I have a feeling this music would bore a lot of listeners, both in the East and the West.
