Sama’a: The Mystic Ecstasy
Festival of Sufi Music
Friday, 10th to Sunday, 12th November
An NCPA Presentation
In association with Sahachari Foundation Events
Supported by Officer’s Choice Blue Snacks
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.
Sufiana Songs by Kailash Kher
Kailash Kher’s presentation will include a bouquet of sufiana compositions from traditional repertoire and also songs based in Bollywood.
Box Office for the Festival: 9th October for Members & 12th October for Public
