You made me drink from oneness, O drummer
You made my soul a wineglass, O my fate

This will be the last Sufi frame-drum workshop offered by Silk Roads for the year – just in time to raise the temperature for these cold dark days.
Check the video to this Sufi frame-drum workshop where aside from one person none of the participants had ever played the frame-drum before.
We will be learning the instruments with their rhythms and chants as quickly as possibly so that we can practice a Sufi ‘dhikr’ meditation with the daf frame-drums.
Please arrive promptly as the doors close at 7.15pm. (You can ring 07821 182696 to be let in if you’re late)
£10 on the door

He was told: “What if Layla were not?” He said: “I would have wept her into existence.” – from ‘Majnun Layla’ by Qassim Haddad
This event is a voluntary donations concert towards the completion of a new Sufi centre, but you are welcome to attend in peace regardless of your contribution.
We are delighted to have the Turkish ney virtuoso Murad Ferhad. He is joined by Stanislaw Vidya on Bulgarian flute (kaval), Cheong Li on Chinese violin (erhu), and Khaled Hakim on daf and vocals to perform traditional Sufi music. There will be a specially created piece on the myth of Orpheus.
Poetry from Orpheus and Eurydice, Majnun and Layla, and the Persian Sufi poets.
We would be so pleased if you brought something small to share in a little feast with everyone – even if it’s just a tangerine.
Grand Shaykh Taner Ansari of the Ansari Sufi Order will be there to talk about the new Sufi Centre and to lead a short zikr meditation for humanity.
Suggested donation of £8.
