AllMusic Review by

The music of the Sufi culture is one of worldbeat's most stirring but under-recognized treasures -- although the qawwali sound has captured considerable attention internationally, other dimensions of Sufi culture have gone sadly unnoticed, a situation that this excellent and expertly compiled compilation from Shanachie goes far in rectifying. The 11 tracks that comprise Land of the Sufis: Soul Music from the Indus Valley possess a beauty and spiritual power that is remarkable, spotlighting the many facets of Sufi expression in their purest and most compelling forms.
