Welcome to News and Events

You're invited to our Sufi Songs of Love Concert on Thurs, May 9 at 6pm at the Charles B. Wang Center, Stony Brook University, Long Island

Described by the New York Times as "an ambassador for a silenced music", Amir Vahab is one of New York's most celebrated and distinguished composer-vocalists of Sufi folk music. He sings with a uniquely mystical style, weaving together Persian, Turkish, and Azeri instruments and songs set to thirteenth- and fourteenth-century poetry from Rumi, Hafiz, Baba Taher, and Yunus Emre. The repertoire of Vahab and his ensemble is grounded in traditional Persian poetry and music, long known for its power to transport listeners to heightened spiritual states through melody, improvisation, and rhythm.

Audiences will be elevated to a spiritual world through a lovely syncretism of music and poetry and the evening will include authentic whirling.

Tickets may be purchased here.
