“Olkoon Sydämenne Täynnä” by Alda, Mea, Onni, Nader & Pedram

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Helsinki, Finland with Alda Aflatuni, Mea Karvonen, Onni Aflatuni, Nader Aflatuni and Pedram Aflatuni who sing “Olkoon Sydämenne Täynnä”, based on a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha.

– Abdu’l-Baha
