Sound of the Soul

This episode is a compelling portrait of an Arab country where Muslims, Christians, and Jews have lived together in relative peace for centuries. This powerful music-driven documentary demonstrates how music is a unifying, transcendent force, and a powerful starting point for reducing conflict and crossing religious divides. Beautifully photographed during the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, 'Sound of the Soul,' presents unforgettable performances from groups from Morocco, Ireland, Afghanistan, Mauritania, the USA, Portugal and France. An inspiring antidote to religious fundamentalism and violence, the film ultimately reveals the essential oneness among all faiths, so aptly expressed in the Afghan singer Farida Mahwash's closing affirmation: 'Music has no religion, no borders, no boundaries. Music is the sound of the soul.' TVG CC
