God's Unruly Friends is an ensemble founded and led by Dawoud (sitarist, multi-instrumentalist / composer / improviser). The group, as well as Dawoud's solo performances, seamlessly blend east and west, acoustic and electronic, modern and ancient. It transcends the boundaries of style and genre, and fearlessly explores the psychoactive properties of music.

Dawoud also conducts Music Meditation Sessions. These are guided meditations wherein suggested imagery is replaced by musical form.

Dawoud's work on the sitar and dilruba is unique. Described by Italian writer Kristin Parascondolo as "The Jimi Hendrix of the sitar," his experiments with applying jazz technique and electronics to the traditional approach are in many ways unprecedented.

Dawoud is also an accomplished guitarist, bassist, and has composed for film, theater, and dance performances. He is also an accomplished writer / novelist, and artist.
