An Afternoon of Sufi Mystic Music, Dance, and Poetry
Latif Bolat is a Turkish scholar and musician specializing in Sufi music who has performed throughout the world. He will celebrate the mystical tradition in Islam through music and poetry. Throughout the program, devotional poetry will be recited from 13th Century Sufi poets Yunus Emre, Rumi, and images of Turkish people and scenery will be reflected on a screen.
During the concert, Ms. Serap Yilmaz, a devotional dancer from Turkey who specializes in a mystical form of dance known as Whirling Dervish, will also present this 800 years old dance tradition over Latif Bolat’s music.
