“Love Embraces All” was inspired by the poem “The Alchemy of Love” by Rumi. Through the poetry of the 13 th -century Sufi mystic Rumi, interpreted by Aja Black (The Reminders) and with original sound design by Chicago DJ Nevin Hersch, Amirah’s solo work explores the barriers we create within ourselves and the walls that others build around us.

Qadar (Arabic: قدر, transliterated qadar, meaning “fate”) is the concept of divine destiny in Islam. This concept applies to many situations in life including that of romantic love. Often we stay at a closed door knocking, when another one is open for us. This solo uses the vocals of Denver artist, Aja Black (The Reminders), and her cover of Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain”, poetry of 13 th century Islamic scholar and poet, Rumi, and the sound design abilities of Chicago DJ and musician, Nevin Hersch. This is the second solo Amirah created inspired by Rumi’s poetry, as she continues to explore mixing Islamic culture with hip-hop and relevant themes in today’s world.
