Over time and geography, the purpose, form, and style of these traditions have found diverse expressions accommodating local customs and contexts.

At times these expressions have taken melodic forms leveraging the power of poetry and music to bring faith, knowledge, devotion and worship into ecstatic harmony.

An exemplar of such melodic expressions is the devotional literature of ginans of the Ismaili Muslim community.

  1. Thanks to Arzina Merali of Edmunton, Canada and Karim Tharani the librarian of the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, for giving this valuable gift of more than 1000 Ginans recited beautifully by many reciters, to the Ismaili community. Must be preserves by everyone and for the peace of soul should be listened whenever have time.
