Sufi Songs of Love by Amir Vahab and Ensemble
Start Date: 4/1/2015Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 4/1/2015

Event Description:
Described by The New York Times as an "ambassador for a silenced music," Amir Vahab is one of New York City's most commemorated deliverers of Sufi music and poetry. The ensemble, formed by Amir Vahab in 1981, seeks to bridge an understanding between different cultures in the world through the embodiment of the mystical magic that is Sufi poetry. Amir Vahab's music is rooted in tradition, but has been influenced by contemporary sounds; like Amir himself, his music symbolizes diversity-in-unity. He aims to transport the listener to a spiritual existence in 13th century Persia through his performance: Sufi Songs of Love features selected poetry from the great Sufi Masters Rumi, Hafiz and Yunus.

The lively folk and traditional music features the ethereal sounding ney (mystical reed flute), tar (instrument of lovers), oud (the short neck lute), tanbour (ancient sacred lute), saz (seven-stringed long neck lute), daf (large frame drum used for Sufi rituals), and tombak (Persian goblet drum). The concert concludes with a dynamic drumming performance that echoes the universal heartbeat of existence. Join us at the Wang Center for a night of magic you will never forget.
