Sufi music concert tomorrow

Sufi music concert tomorrowISLAMABAD: Arifana Kalam – a Sufi music concert — will mesmerise classical music-lovers on Saturday (tomorrow) with the message of love, tolerance and harmony composed in lyrical forms set to the tunes of local folk music of the Indus Valley.

The Institute for Preservation of Art and Culture (IPAC) and Kuch Khaas Centre for Arts, Culture and Dialogue are jointly organising the evening.

During the middle ages of Islam, a number of contemplating and religious-minded persons were attracted to the towns and cities of the Indus Valley for their reputation for peaceful life and respect for the learned, thus setting the stage for the emergence of a rich tradition of Sufi poetry that has served to unify and synthesise the diverse cultural heritage of the people and their folk wisdom, said organisers from IPAC. – Dailytimes
