You that come to birth and bring the mysteries,
Your voice-thunder makes us very happy.

Roar, lion of the heart,
and tear me open.


Jalaluddin Rumi, one of the world’s most revered mystical poets, produced a prolific range of inspiring and devotional poetry that encapsulates the Sufi experience of union with the divine. Although Rumi was a Sufi and a scholar of the Qu’ran, his appeal reaches across religious and social divisions. This performance unites the classic poetry of the thirteenth century mystic with the innovative music, dance, and story of a remarkable ensemble: poet and Rumi translator Coleman Barks; cellist David Darling; world percussionist Glen Velez, and dancer and storyteller Zuleikha. It is a soul-stirring collaboration.
