The 75 year old Ustad Saami risks his life daily to keep alive his customised, 49-note, microtonal, multilingual Surti system. Containing pre-Islamic elements and handed down by his ancestors for a thousand years, he is the only practitioner left in the world. Although his vocal style may be rooted in the 13thCentury, Mojo and Uncut have called his 2019 album God is Not a Terrorist ‘electrifying’ and ‘mesmerising’.
