Rumi Festival – Scotland
03 August 2013
Zendeh Delan® has received several invitations to present at festivals and events in Europe over the last several years. One such event was on 3-4 August 2013 where we attended the Rumi Festival organised by the Beshara School in Scotland, United Kingdom.
An amazing range of programmes were scheduled and took place over the two-day festival such as a concert by the ney player Kudsi Erguner, talks, participatory events, music, theatre and dance including legendary rock icon Arthur Brown and Scottish folk musician Mairi Campbell, and a Whirling Dervish sama accompanied by Turkish musicians.
The Zendeh Delan® ensemble presented music, zekr, sama, and speeches to a diverse and lively audience, who shared enthusiastic feedback and were very moved and touched by the programme.
