The upward climb is a journey without distance – the road to the purification of the soul and self realization. Those who choose to climb the steep path take the celestial stairs to a higher Being and a higher meaning in life. But this road requires from the traveler a sincere spirit dedicated to overcoming struggle. For this reason the upward climb is, as Robert Frost would put it, the road “less traveled by”. I pray we all find strength and courage on this road. This album is an exploration of the “upward climb” in regards to spirituality, humanity, and politics. The project is a patchwork of the many musical influences in my life from hip hop to traditional Arabic folk music, bound by the common thread of poetry.
