about

HuDost and Sophia Unity Foundation are proud to announce the release of the new HuDost single download & video of the song Murshid. This piece was written & produced by Moksha Sommer & Jemal Wade Hines as the theme song for the motion picture documentary My Heart’s Song for which HuDost has written the bulk of the soundtrack.

In writing the song Murshid, Sommer wished to address the type of quest and spiritual seeking that defies the passage of time and is as relevant now as it was when Sufi Master Hazrat Inayat Khan was alive. The song combines her own lyrics and words by Inayat Khan that he wrote to his teacher. Sommer and Hines crafted the arrangement of the song in production to dance around this timeless quality. About the piece, Sommer states, “This work acknowledges that it is in the humble process of seeking the teaching from a master that the teacher within ourselves that was lying dormant awakens.”
