And the love which is given without asking for anything in return,
Or without holding anything in reserve….

Music just pours
from her, as do songs and lyrics that speak straight to the heart.
And in her
leadership service, she is articulate and generous and kind.

Laila Brady Walzer’s deep joy and honor is to sing from the
soul, reminding people Who they truly are. She is a teacher in the Shadhuliyya Sufi way, a tradition which has included many
poets and musicians as well as healers. When she writes, her intention is to open the door to deeper levels of inspiration
and healing for the listener, whether sublime or humorous. She often accompanies herself on mountain dulcimer, the Irish pennywhistle,
the bodhran (Irish goatskin drum) and guitar. Singing and writing music since the age of two, her deep love and inspiration
now is sacred Sufi chant for healing.
What people say about Laila’s music
" If you ever wondered what it is like to hear an Angel sing.............
listen to Laila."
voice is like the song of angels. Her voice exudes holiness, joy, transporting you to place within your heart of exquisite
beauty and healing.”
voice is a clear and angelic gift to all who have the pleasure of hearing it. The joy and love of Allah come through
in every note. “
"Laila is a multitalented, spiritually centered
musician whose music goes straight to the heart of the matter. Whether in a song like "The Hollow Flute" which
leaves one quietly contemplative and filled with the truth of the song of the Creator, or the Supplication Doggie being "seven
kinds of cute" she brings a unique perspective which causes one to sit up and take notice. Her inventive accompaniments
on the mountain dulcimer add to the delight of hearing Laila share her musical and spiritual gifts."
