Sufi music and mysticism meet street art.

About

‘A performance of immense majesty.’

- Mouvement

A Zaman Production & Galerie Itinerrance production

The sacred and profane collide when Sufi music and mysticism meet street art. Ensemble Al Nabolsy & the Whirling Dervishes of Damascus bring their uplifting melodies, enriched by spellbinding dance moves, directly from war-torn Syria’s Umayyad Mosque.

Led by the stirring voice of Noureddine Khourchid, the son of a Syrian Sufi sheik, seven singers perform exquisite invocations, songs of praise and Sufi poems as three Whirling Dervishes hypnotically spin on the stage. This sublime musical experience is made thrillingly vivid as the stage comes alive with illuminated calligraphy painted by Tunisian street artist Shoof. His striking brushstrokes provide a dazzling backdrop to the ritual music and movement of White Spirit.

Trance, music and visual art come together for a spiritual spectacle as exciting as it is enchanting.
