With an enthralling presentation, Sufi dance is a spiritual practice known as Samâ and is related to “spiritual hearing” in Sufism. To reach the deepest realms of the soul, dancers whirl to the repetitive cadence of Sufi music which evokes a practice that rekindles the memory. The powerful rhythm of the music reminds participants of the heartbeat and leads us to the mystical intoxication of the Samâ.

Rana Gorgani creates performances where musicians with influences from Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Algeria or Morocco meet to accompany refined and exuberant shows.
