The Whirling Dervishes of Rumi
Saturday, November 9, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Whirling Dervishes (Sema)
This ritual dance, called Sema, is among the most exquisite ceremonies of sprituality. The whirling of the dervishes is an act of love and a drama of faith. The Sema is a preciese choreography, a meditation in motion in which the dervishes are accompained by beautiful authentic Sufi music. The music contains some of the most core elements of Eastern classical music and serves as an accompaniment for Rumi's poetry.
