On the hills in and round Cape City, you’ll discover 300 12 months previous Muslim graves belonging to notable people who arrived on the southern tip of the African continent in chains, as slaves or political prisoners of colonisers. They introduced nothing with them, besides religion of their hearts and the remembrance of God on their tongues.

That is the story of the attractive melodic tones of Cape City dhikr and why it has such a singular sound. Spanning centuries and continents, it’s a story of imprisonment and enslavement, colonialism and resistance; of sufi tariqahs, students and princes. It’s a story of hardship, braveness and perseverance, however above all, of religion in God.
