From the Vaults: The Spirit of Rumi, a two-part series

Thursday, December 17, 2009

We'll listen to texts by the great 13th century poet and mystic Jalal ad-Din Rumi, poetry that is nearly music, as incorporated into ritual music of the Mawlawiyah order of the Whirling Dervishes and music inspired by Rumi, in the music of Polish singer and multi-instrumentalist Mieczyslaw Litwinksi.
