Sufi Dance From Persia

100 Nicolls Road
Stony Brook, New York 11794-4040

In Sufism, dance is a spiritual practice known as Samâ and is related to “spiritual hearing.” To reach the deepest realms of their souls, dancers whirl to the repetitive cadence of Sufi music. The powerful rhythm of the music is reminiscent of the human heartbeat, creating a mystical intoxication of beat and movement. France-based Iranian choreographer and dancer Rana Gorgani will perform, accompanied by the talented Hedayat Shafeei on the tar (a traditional Iranian string instrument) and by Mehdi Darvishi, master of Iranian percussions.
