Presented by: Caravan World Rhythms Society
In 2013, Caravan World Rhythms presented an evening of uplifting Sufi Music & Dance, featuring the Vashaan Ensemble, whirling dervishes, and guest Turkish musician Omar Faruk Tekbilek at the Chan Centre, a concert that was a highlight of the arts scene that year. Caravan once again presents the Vashaan Ensemble in January 2016 for their CD Release of “Dowlate Eshgh – Reign of Love” for another evening of Sufi-inspired Iranian music. On this occasion they will be joined by internationally renowned Sufi singer Davod Azad, and the mesmerizing whirling dancers Raqib Burke and Lindsey Ridgway. Sure to be another highlight event of the year!
