Dust Into Gold

DUST INTO GOLD is the collaboration of the electro-accoustic producer/trumpet player saQi and the Montreal-born multi-instrumentalist/vocalist suRaj. With the record the duo explores a deep fusion of progressive electronic downtempo and dance music with a variety of Middle-Eastern inspired realms of sound. Having performed for many years all over the globe with the Qawwali ensemble Fanna-Fi-Allah, suRaj brings some very unique flavors to the table via the oud, bazouki and vocals.

album the muse

The Muse

album the muse

New full-length Album. 11 tracks, tons of special guests…..Within each of us exists the power to harness a creative spirit. This divine entity has come to be known as The Muse. In ancient cultures credit for creative endeavors was given to one’s Muse and not the individual. During the course of making this record I came to understand this phenomenon and experience it firsthand. Through collaboration, songwriting, brainstorming and experimentation I discovered how making space for something bigger allowed incredible stories to be told. This record contains many such stories brought to life by myself and several dear friends and collaborators. I offer Immense thanks and gratitude to them for their work, and to their creative spirits for gifting them with song. I hope the music inspires you to find your own muse and let your story be told…<3 saQi
