In this concert, the Konya Turkish Sufi Music Ensemble and the Sama Ensemble perform traditional Mevlevi rituals. The Mevleviye or Mevlevî Order is a Sufi order founded in Konya, the former capital of the Anatolian Seljuk Sultante. From 1273 the order spread across the entire Ottoman Empire. Today, one can find the order in almost all Turkish communities throughout the world. The Mevlevi Order is famous for its mesmerising whirling dance of Dervishes or Sufi monks. The Sama ritual is a physical way to reach a higher degree of spirituality. The dizziness felt by the Dervishes during their endless whirling at high speed, with one hand extended to the cosmos and the other to earth, is a profoundly spiritual experience. The whirling symbolises the way electrons and planets revolve. Since 2005, the Sama ceremony is designated as UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
