We had a fabulous time at the Bradford Literature Festival, not least because we got to spend some time with the super talented and beautifully humble Medina Tenour Whiteman. She shared a Rumi* poem as part of her poetry session and then we grabbed her later in the hotel (erm…about half midnight) and recorded this in the corridor for your enjoyment!

*The poem is widely attributed to Rumi but originates from Abu Saeed Abul Khair.
So very beautiful ❤️ I can’t stop listening… Lovely…
Singing in the hotel corridor after midnight….?
(Note to self: – avoid staying in hotels with Sufis)
But yeah, she was good. There was something about her spoken voice too when she read her poetry – she spoke right in to me. Maybe she just reminded me of someone I knew. px
Beautiful voice from a beautiful heart! Thank you! x
It couldn’t be more beautiful! 😉
