RUMI NIGHT - A Concert Based on Mystical Poetry

“In the house of lovers, the music never stops, the walls are made of songs & the floor dances”

- Jalaluddin Rumi, 13th Century Mystic & Poet

The Soveida Ensemble returns to the Kensington Unitarian Church for another night of mystical music. Allow the rhythms to transport you, while the love filled words of Rumi, and other spiritual masters, fill the air. The concert begins at 7pm and ends at 9pm, with a 20 minute refreshment break in the middle.

Space is limited so please be sure to book!

*Tickets are on a donation basis, all profit goes to charity.




ABOUT SOVEIDA

Based on a long since forgotten form of Classical Persian music, the Soveida Ensemble perform on some of the oldest instruments created by man, including the Tanbour, Setar, Tar, Daf, Tombak and Ney.

This style of music is a rendition of ancient Gnostic sacred rhythms that have been passed down from one generation to another, from master to student, over thousands of years, and form part of a Gnostic spiritual exercise of creating ever deeper inner emptiness, as a means of journeying to ones essence, or soul.

Even though these rhythms have been employed in the East for centuries, The Soveida Ensemble is the first group who has presented them in a concert format for the benefit of a Western audience. For this reason, it forms a unique opportunity to experience the only group playing this specific strain of Classical Persian music.

Audiences in Germany, France, Brussels and throughout the UK have welcomed the Soveida Ensemble and they are delighted to be returning to the Kensington Unitarian Church.

-------------------------------------

Please note: The Ensemble kindly request that you do not applaud at the end of each piece of music. We understand this may feel strange at first, but it allows everyone present to feel the effect of the inner vibration of the music. We recommend you take the time to focus inwards and enjoy the peace it brings.
