Live Performance of “We Have Not Come To Take Prisoners” from Songs for Hafiz

December 27, 2017

This is one of 7 songs composed by Sarah Kennedy with Dan Reynolds inspired by the poems of Hafiz.  Using Daniel Ladinsky’s English translations as lyrics Sarah created melodies and arrangements around the poems and Dan Reynolds assisted with harmonization.  Sarah was inspired by the desire to show to Westerners that the Sufi tradition (a tradition of Islam) is full of love and universal connection.

“Of course, I do not understand the deeper intricacies of Sufism, but I am grateful for the creative inspiration and personal healing that these poems gave me.”  — Sarah Kennedy
