Istanbul Music and Sema Group - T1938842821

A whirling ceremony and Turkish mystical music performed by the world's leading group of Whirling Dervishes and musicians. A fascinating evening of poetry and music from the sufi traditions, building through the four steps of the ceremony, culminating in the hypnotic whirling and a reading from the Qur'an. The performance features Turkish sufi music and the whirling ceremony, all closely adhering to a 700 year old mystical tradition. An enchanting experience, evoking the call for human love, brotherhood and tolerance that everyone should see at least once in a lifetime. Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, idolator, worshipper of fire, come even though you have broken your vows a thousand times, Come, and come yet again. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come as you are.
