Byron Spirit Festival is honoured to present Tahir Qawwal & The Sufi Ensemble for an uplifting evening of Sufi Qawwali Music.
DEEP DEVOTION ~ ECSTATIC RHYTHM ~ MYSTICAL POETRY
Traditionally performed in Sufi ceremonies (Sama), the music of Qawwali offers a light of inspiration, kindling the light of divine love in the hearts of listeners. Tahir Qawwal has played a huge role throughout the world in bringing this music out of India and Pakistan, helping people to understand the beauty and power of the tradition and culture.
Here again at the Byron Theatre, the community is offered an opportunity to gather and connect to the devotional music and mystical poetry of Qawwali.
Joining Tahir will be musicians from Sydney, Adelaide and New Zealand.
There will be some seating up close on the floor (bring a pillow) and plenty of theatre seating, though dancing and wild abandon is encouraged!
