Alwan for the Arts presents:

The Pejman Tadayon Ensemble

In Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, music is considered the most sacred of all arts because it raises the human soul higher than external rituals. The Pejman Tadayon Ensemble merges three disciplines that best express the essence of Sufism: music, dance and poetry. Persian Sufi music consists of devotional compositions inspired by the verses of mystic poets such as Rumi, Hafiz and Sa’adi, among others. Music is also the basis of the Sema, the ceremony of the whirling dervishes. The beauty and sacredness of Sufi Music and dance represent the yearning for union with the divine. Featuring:
