About this event

Sufi Songs of Rumi, Hafiz and other Sufi Poets

Amir Vahab and Ensemble, with the Daf Caravan

An Evening Concert

Saturday, June 8, 2013 at 8pm

Amir Vahab has been described by The New York Times as an “ambassador for a silenced music.” One of NYC’s most celebrated composer/vocalists of Persian sacred and folk music, he has recorded six albums, and sings in the evocative, traditional Persian style which embodies millennia of mystical tradition.

This evening, Amir Vahab (www.tanbour.org) and ensemble will perform songs selected from the poetry of the great Sufi masters Rumi and Hafiz and other legendary mystical poets—to transport us to 13th century Persia with all its beauty and exoticism. The ensemble will also perform lively traditional music from Persian, Turkish, Kurdish and other sources featuring the mystical reed flute, ancient lutes, and the daf drum. The concert concludes with a dynamic drumming performance that echoes the universal heartbeat of existence.
