Whirling Dervishes of Rumi


Part of the periodic “Get out of Hoboken” series.

This Sunday, The NJ Performing Arts Center in Newark is featuring a rare event for those who love performing arts. If this is your bag of chips, note that it’s their only appearance, and cannot be seen in NYC or Philadelphia.

Whirling Dervishes coming to NJ again after 3 years

UNESCO declared 2007 as Rumi Year. Therefore, the Interfaith Dialog Center is organizing a live performance of Whirling Dervishes at NJPAC on Sunday, Oct. 21, 2007.

Mevlevi Order has offered spiritual training based on the principles of Sufism for seven centuries. It traces back to Mawlana Jalaladdin Rumi, one of the greatest scholars, spiritual leaders and poets the world has ever known. The Mevlevis, or whirling Dervishes, have performed one of the world’s most beautiful spiritual ceremonies. The Sema, as it is called, is a precise choreography, a meditation in motion, in which the dervishes are accompanied by a refined and mystical music consisting of flutes, strings, chorus, and percussion.

IDC is proud of bringing world’s famous whirling dervishes group “Turkish Sufi Music Group of Konya” to New Jersey.

Place: NJPAC, Newark, NJ
Date: October 21, 2007

Tickets are available at NJPAC, 888-466-5722
