Description: This festival has celebrated sacred musical traditions of the greater Middle East since 2007. The programs on this season?s celebration of the sacred focus on Sufi, mystical Islamic, traditions that stretch across North Africa through the Levant and east into Central and South Asia. September 15: Arooj Aftab and Ensemble Fresh, graceful innovations based on classical Pakistani, Sufi, and pre-partition South Asian music honoring ancestral roots performed by Arooj Aftab, originally from Lahore, Pakistan, and her ensemble. September 20: Screening: Bab'Aziz - The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul Bab'Aziz is the latest film from Tunisian writer and director Nacer Khemir. The story unfolds as the blind dervish Bab'Aziz (Parviz Shahinkhou) and his granddaughter Ishtar (Maryam Hamid) cross the desert in search of the great reunion of dervishes that takes place only once every thirty years. Side-by-side, the old man and the child wander for days across wide seas of sand with only their faith to guide them. September 22: Ush?q A melding of spiritual, improvisatory music based on a shared common ground of Sufism, poetry, & related maq?m systems, performed by representatives from North Africa, the Arab World, and Central/South Asia brought together in an ensemble called Ush?q and presented in collaboration with the Asian American Arts Alliance's Locating the Sacred. September 29: Tarab Ensemble Celebrating the communal practice of music through repetitive chanting, rhythmic cycles, and dance movements transports the devout into a state of trance. The New York-based Tarab Ensemble takes its name from the word "tarab," which refers to the intoxication induced by music, the gate through which Sufis cross into the world of true being.
