The second video teaser for the documentary "WAJD: Music, Politics & Ecstasy" about Syrian-Canadian filmmaker Amar Chebib's journey exploring the sacred musical tradition of Western Asia and its delicate relationship with Islam and the state.

Ibrahim Muslimani, the young talented percussionist, explains the deep connection between the Sufi lodges and music in Aleppo. Here we witness intimate Sufi ceremonies and a beautiful musical performance from the Aleppo-based ensemble Nawa.

Unfortunately many of our friends in this video have since had to flee Aleppo because of the current Syrian Civil War.
