I love the second and third songs (Fatima  and Wavin’ Flag).

Speaking of music, I had been meaning to profile an artist I met at ISNA this summer.  I don’t have the time presently to write a lengthy piece but I want to make sure to mention him.  I was impressed with Ismail Daugherty’s (who goes by the name Khalil Ismail) talent and character.  From the intro. song (awesome! classical music sauteed with hip hop/rap to perfection) on, Ismail’s ability to use his musical aptitude with thought and full awareness/consciousness (which is rare to see with such consistence throughout an album) is obvious.  If you can, please support this brother who is well-spoken, a good writer and musically gifted, masha’Allah. http://www.khalilmusic.com/
