The Intoxicating world Fusion of Opium Moon: The Echoes Interview

Today we journey into world fusion with Opium Moon. This is the Grammy winning ensemble who are part of a new wave of artists fusing sounds from the Middle east. Their music taps the overtly sensual sounds of this region. But Opium Moon’s Lili Hadyn says it’s all about the spirit.

Lili Hayden: Honestly, it’s all about flow. We’re letting the spirit move through us and if it’s coming though in a more sensual way, god bless. And if it comes in more of a sacred way than similarly.

We talk to this ensemble which includes acclaimed Canadian-American violinist violinist Lili Haydn, Iranian-American santurist Hamid Saeidi, American percussionist MB Gordy and Israeli-American bass guitarist Itai Disraeli.  Their new album is Where We Are Gathered. There has, perhaps never been a better time for their music of unity. Hear it tonight on Echoes from PRX.
