Eastern Rose Garden (2015 10th Anniversary Remaster) (Digital Download & Physical CD Options)

by HuDost



'In an Eastern Rose Garden' is HuDost's 2005 debut album of Sufi songs. To celebrate HuDost's 10th Anniversary and their release of their new 'Sufi Kirtan' record, we now present you with a new remastered 2015 version of 'Eastern Rose' by Dale Becker of Bernie Becker Mastering which is being reissued in both physical & digital formats.

From the 2015 Remaster liner notes:

“Hu can believe it’s been 10 years since this, our debut record, was released?? Originally, this was meant to be a one-off project of Sufi songs created with the beautiful Linda Worster and friends while Moksha and I continued to work on our song-writing as ‘MokshaJemal’. All of a sudden HuDost was birthed as a ‘real band’! We are humbled that this is how it all started; honoring the various spiritual paths that led us here. This modest
recording was a labor of love and was also my first venture into production as I was fresh out of audio school. Here we are 10 years down the road and more grateful & inspired than ever. We hope you enjoy the ‘sonic update’ with this new 10th Anniversary remaster”!- Jemal Wade


"These beautiful atmospheric, warm and resonant songs weave the evocative, exquisite poetry from Muslim mystic poets, including the well-known Sufi, Rumi, as well as Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan and Yunus Emre of the Rifai Marufi Order. With stylistic colors of folk, new age and pop presented with the colorful harmonic vocubulary of the East, this gentle album delicately pairs the two art forms with great success."
- CDBaby

"I love this CD! Many artists, in the past, have tried to give new life to the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan, Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi, and the others on this CD, through music. None has done as elegant a job as Hu Dost! The three beautiful voices harmonize in a compelling and evocative atmosphere, the rhythms are an echo to your own heart. The instrumentals add a grace to the songs that inspires, rather than detracting from the message. Visually, the CD package is a treasure with the book insert designed by Jemal and with artwork from Micheal Greene and others.
I whole-heartedly endorse and recommend this CD first to anyone who is interested in the Chishtiyya lineage as it has come forth in the West, secondly, to anyone who love first class music that brings forth one's spiritual nature, and lastly to anyone who just plain loves great music."
- Imam Salim Chishti
