I met Billy (Sa’id) Jonas a little over ten years ago. I needed musicians with heart for The Farm of Peace Unity Music Festival and he was a perfect addition to the line-up. About the same time, I also learned of a Canadian performer, Dawud Wharnsby and was able to meet him and catch his performance in DC. I immediately liked him both as a person and as a musician and although an injury prevented him from performing at the Unity Music Festival, our paths would cross again. Flash forward to Abraham Jam: a band consisting of Billy Jonas, Dawud Wharnsby and David LaMotte.
Abraham Jam’s mission is so deeply aligned with what we believe as aspiring Sufis and the music is, frankly, fantastic! I hope you will enjoy exploring their website, listening to music videos and learning more about their work to bring the message of Unity to anyone who will listen. Salaam, Shalom, Peace.
Warmly, Maryam Hand
