"I have the belief as an musician, that music holds many roles in culture, history, and spirit. Yet these days the music seems stagnant and unable to reach the soul of the listener. I play acoustic music because it is the music of the soul, pure, simple yet at times complex, but able to reach a part of us that has long waited to be spoken to." - Haji Basim
