One of the important contributions to the future of our music." - Jazz legend and Baha'i brother, Dizzy Gillespie

"Powerfully optimistic songs delivered with striking originality." - The Boston Globe

"Thoughtful, sensitive and impressionistic describes the music of Do'a, an Arabic-Persian word signifying a call to prayer, meditation and worship. Using wind, string and percussion instruments from all parts of the world, Randy Armstrong and Ken LaRoche merge classical, jazz, folk and world-wide musical influences, creating a universal and timeless experience. Randy and Ken see the earth as one country, drawing their inspiration from its rich and varied cultural heritage. The music of Do'a reflects their highest hope: the Unity of the Family of Man." We introduce you to their first album dedicated to this hope." - Robert Atkinson, Ph.D., co-author of The Beat Of My Drum: An Autobiography by Babatunde Olatunji and professor at the University of Southern Maine

The song, "Flight", was the title track of an album LP released by the Baha'i Publishing Trust in 1977 featuring a collection of original songs by many Baha'i musicians. "Flight" includes a recitation of a Baha'i Prayer.

Do'a is an Arabic-Persian word signifying a call to prayer, meditation, chanting and worship.
