filmed and produced by Iqbal
Iqbal is a talented musician who performs and records with acoustic guitar, steel string guitar and flamenco guitar. In addition he adds prana flute (played only with the mouth) and ritual drums (an African python skin drum and a goat skin drum).
His vocals are melodic and soothing. He sings in six languages, English, French, Spanish, German, Gujarati, Swahili and Sanskrit. He records with additional players on his CD's adding piano and various healing flutes.
Iqbal's music is based on "Ragas". Musically, ragas are melodic arrangements which are ancient and sacred.The haunting melodies and the microtonal intervalic logic are regarded as the "color of the mind" being the result of tonal arrangements ruled by cosmological and aesthetic laws related with dimensions of light (night & day).
Iqbal's motivation in creating music is to help people relax and reduce the stress in their lives. He feels that music is a form of energy capable of healing our very cells. Healing music produces a chemical response in the brain that affects how you are feeling, resulting in more relaxation and less chronic stress.
