Sound And Spirit Music Fest Held In Waveland

This weekend's music retreat in Bay St. Louis translated the one language common to all people, music.

The event brought musicians together to teach songs and chants from different spiritual cultures.

One song they sang has the characteristics of seven different religious sects.

"World music retreat happens on the East Coast and West Coast, why not the Gulf Coast?" event organizer Victoria Tackett asked.

"We recognize that there is one source of water and many wells, all the religions are the wells. The universal language of human beings is music," festival music director Shabda Kahn said.
