The Ismaili is pleased to present Mazee Balayem, performed by the Yusuf Khirad Band at the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Centre in Khorog, Tajikistan, in 2019. The lyrics, attributed to Jalal al-Din Rumi, express the complexity of human existence and the importance of zikr. The musical composition is a blend of traditional Central Asian instruments such as the daf, doirah, rubab, and sehtar, and modern instruments including the keyboard and guitar.
