The renowned artist Omar Faruk Tekbilek is a clear example of fusion of Eastern and Western music, demonstrating that it is possible to give preference to artistic expression and emotion over difference. His compositions enable listeners to discover the updated roots of Turkish music, with which he renews the particular Mediterranean sounds of his homeland, without forsaking tradition. 
Omar Faruk is currently presenting with his ensemble Love is my religion, work that reflects his cosmic vision and approach to life, happiness and harmony, sounds that arise from exuberant and universal traditional Sufi music, the folklore and the contemporary music of Turkey and the Middle East.
Omar Faruk considers that his artistic approach is "cosmic", and his creativity exudes mysticism, folklore, romance and imagination. Over time, his learning has followed a continuum, both in the field of music as well as that of religion.
With Love is my religion the great multi-instrumentalist and composer Omar Faruk appears once again as an emblem of world music.
