Sufi Music in Old Town November 14

Classical Tuesdays in Old Town is excited to feature North Indian vocalist Srivani Jade on Tuesday Nov. 14 at 7:00pm in Slavonian Hall. Srivani, returning by popular demand!,  is turning her attention to Sufi Mystic Music and is bringing The Nirguni Ensemble to back her up in this venture.

Srivani Jade, North Indian vocalist

 A musical offering of uplifting spiritual poetry from the Indian Subcontinent over the centuries (13th C to present): Nirguni and Sufi poets--Rumi, Khusrau, Kabir, and more--have all written about transcending form and seeing the One in everyone and everything. We will be performing some lovely gems of thought from these poets and thinkers, and taking the audience along with us on an uplifting spiritual journey.
