A NIGHT OF TURKISH SUFI MYSTIC MUSIC, POETRY AND IMAGES

Latif Bolat plays Turkish Folk Music and devotional Sufi songs which are called Ilahi and Nefes, from the Anatolian peninsula. The lyrics of Ilahis or Nefeses are taken largely from the great 13th century mystical poets Rumi and Yunus Emre. The program also includes devotional ballads composed by Latif Bolat. Throughout the program, devotional poetry will be recited from 13th Century Sufi poets Yunus Emre and Rumi, and images of Turkish people and scenery will be reflected on a screen.
