"The roots of many world music forms were recorded by the seminal German jazz label CMP with a selection of releases at the beginning of the 1990s. Seeking out living masters who embodied the traditions of music from their respective countries, CMP made digital recordings in the field to preserve their current renditions. Sufism is the main inspiration for all fine arts in Turkey and the most important source of musical literature within the entire Islamic world. Recorded digitally in Turkey, Gazel features Turkey's finest singers assembled and supported by a master of traditional Mevlevi Sufi, Kudsi Erguner who has performed with Peter Gabriel."
