a community of lovers
Medieval Italy and Turkey produced two of the biggest names in mystic thought: St. Francis and Rumi. It has been 800 long years since they departed and the Italian Cultural Institute in Edinburgh is showcasing a program that celebrates their legacies with poetry, music, movement and philosophical ideas, reflecting the devotional and mystical aspect of Anatolian culture accumulated over thousands of years.
Latif Bolat, Turkish singer, composer and scholar of Turkish music and folklore, will be performing on Thursday 2 October 2014 at 6pm.
And on Saturday 4 October at 7.30pm, Rumi’s Circle and Threshold Society will be joining him for music and whirling.
Assembly Roxy, 2 Roxburgh Place, Edinburgh.
