Sheikh Ahmed Al Tuni by Karim Shaaban


Sheikh Ahmed Al Tuni is known as one of Egypt's great Sufi singers, but I must confess I didn't know about him till I saw this video by Karim Shaaban filmed in Alexandria, Egypt for the Ramadan 29 series.

Al Tuni has quite a following and has performed across Europe and even appeared in and contributed to the soundtrack of Vengo. I've always been very intrigued by Sufism and the relationship between music and spirituality.
