From Persia to Andalusia – A Musical Journey through Sufism
Rachid Gholam’s captivating Spirit of Tarab is a nostalgic and unforgettable journey into the spellbinding history of Sufi poetry and music. A homage to the ‘saints of love’, revered Moroccan singer Gholam’s new project is inspired by the transcendence of the Sufi experience and the iconic poetry and symbolism of his spiritual forefathers.
Spirit of Tarab presents a spiritual and colorful performance, where Gholam’s captivating voice invites masterful renditions of legendary Sufi figures such as Maulana Rumi and Sheikh Ibn Arabi, and explores the the expansive history of Sufi music and philosophy. Ranging geographically from the Persian Mountains to the Andalusian coast, Ghoulam covers the reach of Sufi art and philosophy, uncovering the Iraqi Maqam, Aleppo Qadud and the Andulsian Muwashahat on its way.
