I'm thrilled to host the renowned Sufi vocalist Umer Piracha for an evening of traditional Sufi music (dating back to 14th century), with contemporary influences.

Doors open at 7 pm, with the music starting around 7:30 pm. I will serve light refreshments.

Looking forward to sharing an exquisite musical experience with you all!

What's the music?

This 45-minute program features a blend of traditional Sufi music and contemporary sound healing practices. Umer Piracha, a renowned Sufi vocalist, will guide the audience through a transformative journey with pieces such as "Asan Monhoun," "Kirpa Karo," "Chaap Tilak," and "Aaj Rang." These songs, deeply rooted in the 14th-century Sufi tradition, are reinterpreted to create an immersive experience that promotes meditation and inner peace. Each piece is chosen for its ability to evoke a sense of longing and connection to the sacred, resonating with Umer's own spiritual journey and artistic vision.

Where does this music come from?

The music performed is rooted in the rich tradition of Sufi mysticism, which dates back to the 14th century. Sufi music, known for its deep spiritual and emotional expressions, has been a source of solace and community for centuries. This performance blends ancient Sufi vocal techniques with modern sound healing practices, creating a bridge between the past and the present. By reinterpreting these timeless pieces, Umer Piracha continues the legacy of Sufi musicians who have used their art to explore the mysteries of the human soul and the divine.
