Sami Yusuf releases new album rich in multicultural influences

Sami Yusuf, a British musician who is also one of the most popular Muslim stars in the world has released a new album titled “The Centre”.

He presents a deeply touching, devotional music, which impressively combines Arabic influences with state-of-the-art 'Western' production values.

Sami who has just been appointed Global Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), composed, arranged, produced and almost entirely self-performed all the songs.

Tied together by a journey of spiritual discovery, the songs are rich in multicultural influences, having drawn from traditional as well as contemporary Middle Eastern, North African and European poetry, instrumentation, and melodies.

Sami’s first two albums sold 15 million copies and earned him a massive global audience.
