“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.” (Rumi)
The well-known Persian mystic and poet Rumi (often referred to as a bridge builder between cultures and religions) knew that behind the beauty of his poems there is a deeper, wordless truth that cannot be experienced with the mind.

Fish And Scale’s new video for the song „Rumi says“ wants to remind you of that truth; a truth that blossoms in your silence.
Let yourself be touched by „Rumi says”. The mystical sounds and the lyrics inspired by Rumi’s poetry guide you to the place inside where your heart speaks to you without words.

Roland verfügt über eine fantastische, ausdrucksstarke Stimme, die ich sofort ins Herz geschlossen habe. Und er singt eine respektable Mischung aus Country, Folk und vor allem Blues, die sehr amerikanisch klingt. Kein Wunder also, dass er in den USA auf offene Ohren stößt.
