PGM 1292 : "SUFI SOUL 3"
=--------------------------------------------------------------------=
DESCRIPTION : the devotional heart of Middle Eastern music
=--------------------------------------------------------------------=
GENRE(s) : Middle Eastern/North African

FEED DATE : 8-27-21

INTRO : The mystical, inward-facing order of Sufism goes back to the very beginning of the Islamic religion in the 8th century. It has parallels to the venerable traditions of Buddhist and Hindu mysticism, and aims for direct union with God by purifying the heart. The work of the Persian Sufi poet RUMI has achieved worldwide popularity for its beauty and insight, and a body of Sufi music evolved to accompany religious practices and meditationùmost famously  the "whirling dervishes" of the Mevlevi order in Turkeyùcreating a genre that's not only alive today, but producing new strains of spiritual music.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space...we revisit the contemplative heart of Middle Eastern music on a program called SUFI SOUL 3.
