UNESCO declared 2007 the “Year of Rumi” honoring the world-famous 13th century Sufi poet Mevlana Jelaleddin Rumi. Master musicians from Turkey and the Whirling Dervish Ensemble, led by Jelaleddin Loras, celebrate Rumi’s mystical union with the whirling prayer dance of the Mevlevi Sufi Order. With flowing white garments and classical Sufi music, this Sema ceremony has stirred the hearts of humanity with sacred beauty for over 700 years.
