BarakaBaraka has a several meanings around the world, similar, except in Turkish where it means barracks.

Baraka, also berakhah, in Judaism, a blessing usually recited during a ceremony, in Islam and Arab-influenced languages, meaning spiritual wisdom and blessing transmitted from God.

“Baraka”, a rarely used French slang term for luck, derived from the Arabic word and ‘Blessing’ in Kiswahili. SBaraka seems to be a quite a well used word that breaks the boundaries of language.

According to the spirit of Baraka, a site dedicated to the movie Baraka as well as other movies like it, “Baraka is an ancient Sufi word, which can be translated as, a blessing, or as the breath, or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds.North Window Arch and Turret Arch in Arches National Park, Utah For many people Baraka is the definitive film in this style.
