Sami Yusuf – A message of hope
Sami Yusuf is British-Muslim musician adored across the Arab world and beyond, but lesser-known here in his homeland; his first album, Al-Muallim, sold three million copies and the second, My Ummah, went on to sell four million. Yusuf is a multi-lingual singer-songwriter, composer, producer and musician who has forged his own genre, an Arabic pop sound bringing a clear message of peace, tolerance, and cross-cultural understanding which he has dubbed Spiritique. His message resonates with the liberation movements springing up across North Africa and the Middle East as reflected in these two clips of his latest release ‘I Am Your Hope’.
