My desire is that people can remember the higher Truth through music: Sami Yusuf

Rahman and his own favourite, UK-based artist Sami Yusuf, with a mixture of south Indian melodies, electronic music and a strong vocal-led base for each of the 11 tracks. While he’s meditative on ‘Aa Mil Yaar’ to open things, Qadam Badha is a steady process of opening up for Wahab.
