Sama’a: The Mystic Ecstasy

Festival of Sufi Music

Friday, 10th to Sunday, 12th November

An NCPA Presentation

Based on the mystical branch of Islam, Sufi music seeks to unite listeners with the divine. The pain of separation from the creator is at the core of Sufi lyrics and music; and hence the longing to dissolve the physical realm and transcend into the spiritual universe with sama’a, the practice of listening to music, chanting and whirling, finally culminating in spiritual ecstasy. Sufi music is practised in different regions of the world through myriad genres.
