The Mystery is the third Smith & Dragoman CD, and is dedicated to the life of Abdu'l-Baha. Released in honor of the centenary of His visit to the West, it is the hope of Smith & Dragoman that music and lyrics will bring the listeners ever closer to an appreciation of the life of Abdu'l-Baha through the beautiful themes that characterize His life. With a focus on the remarkable stories of some of the early Baha'is in the West that devoted their lives to His cause, this album harkens to a time when Abdu'l-Baha's presence touched the lives of so many who crossed His path.
