    Global Spirit [#211] Sound of the Soul This episode is a compelling portrait of an Arab country where Muslims, Christians, and Jews have lived together in relative peace for centuries.

An inspiring antidote to religious fundamentalism and violence, the film ultimately reveals the essential oneness among all faiths, so aptly expressed in the Afghan singer Farida Mahwash's closing affirmation: "Music has no religion, no borders, no boundaries. Music is the sound of the soul." duration 56:22   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
