Music: This is the Age
Ali Youssefi - This is the Age
We first discovered Ali Youssefi all those years ago when he produced the beautiful duet with Elika Mahony, "Amame" (have a listen here >). He has continued to produce a number of inspiring and uplifting works over the following years.
His latest work, “This is the Age” is a new song Ali Youssefi and his wife Shadi Youssefi wanted to share to commemorate the Bahá’í Ridvan celebration. Ridvan, meaning “paradise” in Arabic, commemorates the occasion when Bahá’u’lláh announced a new stage in the development of humanity, and era of oneness we must now strive to create. Music composed by Ali Youssefi Video produced by Ali Youssefi & Shadi Youssefi Text from the writings of ʻAbdu'l-Bahá:
“If we are not happy and joyous at this season, for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?... ...Do ye know in what cycle ye are created and in what age ye exist? This is the age of the Blessed Perfection and this is the time of the Greatest Name!”

About Ali Youssefi
Ali has been surrounded by music his entire life. Having had the chance to live in several places around the world, he has been exposed to numerous musical expressions, many of which find a place in his compositions. Ali studied classical guitar in Chile before moving to Argentina to pursue a degree in Music Therapy.
His musical curiosity and love for diversity combine to make him a versatile and original composer and performer, blending genres, instruments and cultures into a unique sound. His biggest delight comes when uniting people through music, which he strives for in all his musical endeavors.
As a Bahá'í, Ali has, from a young age, drawn inspiration from the sacred and mystical writings of his faith that reflect on the purpose of our creation, the underlying unity of all religions and hence the oneness of humanity, and the effort we need to make to transform the reality we live in.
