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

Amar interviews Kabir Helminksi, a Sufi teacher and author, at the annual Threshold Sufi retreat in Whistler, BC. The question of why Sufi music is important to our times is followed by a beautiful musical performance by Persian classical musician, Ali Razmi.
