Event Archive - Latif Bolat and the Turkish Sufi Music Ensemble>Victoria and Gulf Island Tour:

Sat. March 27th 2004 St. Ann's Academy Auditorium (All Ages)
A globally known and revered musician in the genre of Sufi music, Latif Bolat plays baglama and sings devotionals by 13th Century mystic-poets Yunus Emre, Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi and others, as well as Turkish folk
music, rarely heard in these parts. As a scholar of Turkish music, musical
and socio-political history, Latif Bolat educates, while deeply moving and
entertaining his audience with his ethereal take on the Sufi tradition and
his fine musicianship. A typical evening concert is preceded by an engaging
lecture/story-telling session peppered with poetry and breath-taking slide
images of Turkey. Whirlers and other dancers of joy and surrender are common
place, as Bolat's music is deeply spiritual and unwaveringly authentic!
