The ecstatic, passionate poetry of the 13th century mystic Jelaluddin Rumi is the inspiration for the music on the CD Rapture Rumi, by Steven Flynn. Joined by master percussionist Armando Mafufo, Steven utilizes ney (reed flute), tar (frame drum), digeridoo, violin, and more in creating these compositions. Hot rhythms and yearning melodies combine to make songs that speak of the desires of both body and soul. Great music for listening or dancing, meditation or love-making. The first track includes recitation of a few Rumi poems to set the mood; the other tracks are instrumental. Steven Flynn is a Northwest composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. In his work, ancient and modern musical elements combine to produce exotic soundscapes and musical narratives that ignite and inspire the imagination.
