*Whirling Dervishes (Sema)
This ritual dance, called Sema, is among the most exquisite ceremonies of spirituality. The whirling of the dervishes is an act of love and a drama of faith. The Sema is a precise choreography, a mediation in motion in which the dervishes are accompanied by beautiful, authentic Sufi music. The music contains some of the most core elements of Eastern classical music and serves as an accompaniment for Rumi’s poetry.
