Sufism – the mystical branch of Islam – started during the time of Mohamed, and it flourished from the 10th century onward. Sufism has brought forth great poets such as Rumi and Hafez, and the various brotherhoods that spread from Asia to Africa and Andalusia engendered a rich spiritual musical tradition that lives on even today.
For this eighth edition of Sufi Night, Moussem Nomadic Arts Center and BOZAR have compiled yet another programme full of new discoveries.
