He breaks new ground on his latest recording, pairing up with master Iranian Sufi musician Davod Azad. The first single from these sessions is Whiteley’s adaptation of a traditional Georgia Sea Island song, So Glad I’m Here, an upbeat chorus song that rocks with Ken’s vocals, guitar and accordion, Davod’s tar and Chris Whiteley’s harmonica. This recording celebrates connection: between musicians of different cultures, being in the moment and in that moment feeling the presence of the divine. Share the journey and the joy.
