St Cyprian's, Clarence Gate, Glentworth Street, London, NW1 6AX


Turkish Mystic Sufi musician Latif Bolat will present music, poetry and Sufi mystic stories from the ancient land of Turkey.

Latif Bolat plays Turkish Folk Music and devotional Sufi songs which are called Ilahi and Nefes, from the Anatolian peninsula. The lyrics of Ilahis or Nefeses are taken largely from the great mystic poets Yunus Emre, Niyazi Misri and many other ancient troubadours of Turkey.

Whilst being a multi-instrumentalist, Bolat will play the bağlama during his London performance and narrate English and Turkish poems and stories from 13th Century Sufi poets while giving an insight into the cultural elements behind Sufi art and spirituality. A Mevlevi Whirling Dervish will also take the stage to present the devotional Sema dances of the Mevlevi order.

The concert will be a commemoration of Rumi on his 746th death anniversary (Şeb-i Arus).

Yunus Emre Institute in London invites all Londoners to experience this distinctive performance.
