Experience a night of Sufi Music, Zekr and Sama. MTO Sufi Society’s ® Zendeh Delan® Ensemble presents traditional and modern Sufi music, motions of Sama and chants of remembrance (Zekr).
The music originates from the ancient modes of Persian classical music, which are said to have been passed down verbally or “Heart to Heart” for many centuries. Each mode represents a distinct pure emotion mainly extracted into music at times of deep yearning, fervent love, and spiritual ascent. Zendeh Delan® combines these ancient modes with modern beats and melodies to create unique forms of Zekr (Remembrance of the Beloved)
