Sufi Songs of Love: Rumi, Hafiz, Baba Taher and Yunus

Amir Vahab and Ensemble, with The Daf Caravan

One of New York’s most celebrated vocalists of Sufi, sacred, and folk music, Amir Vahab has been described by The New York Times as an “ambassador for a silenced music.” He sings in the evocative, traditional Persian style which embodies millennia of mystical tradition. Amir and his 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—and 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.
