Serj Tankian Premieres “Rumi” Music Video


Serj Tankian has released the below Craig Ray directed music video for his track “Rumi” from his recent solo EP, “Elasticity“. That song pays tribute to both the 13th century Sufi poet Rumi and Tankian‘s own six-year-old son. Tankian stated:

“Lyrical specificity in music is generally discouraged because less people internalize them as they have less of a personal connection. But there are cases where it is vital if the inspiration and muse is specific. In this case, a father talking to his son and reverence to the poet that inspired the son’s name could not be re-written so one can generalize.”
