PERFORMANCE “THE FORGIVENESS”
Created by Ramzi Aburedwan, to reflect new defined horizons, « Jerusalem Sufi Ensemble »’s perspectives have developed to combine elements of Eastern and Sufi music in a fusion of different cultural influences, thanks to a perfect harmonization of the instruments and sacred Sufi songs.
The ensemble draws his influences from its hometown, Jerusalem, which was, is, and will always be a land of spirituality.
The Ensemble of talented Palestinian musicians also aims to document the endangered Sufi heritage and revive the amazing voices that traditionally pray in the city. « Jerusa- lem Sufi Ensemble » works on and performs a large classical and folkloric repertoire from Palestine, the Arab world, as well as original compositions. This performance of “Forgiveness” plunges us intensely into spiritual and Sufi traditions. The repertoires of Hallaj, ibn Arabi, Rumi Abu Baker Shirazi, Taqi aldeen al-Serouji, Imam al-Busiri, Bahduddin Naqshband, Ibn al-Farrid and many others are explored.
Diwan’s celestical voices :
Before becoming a singer and expanding his Arabic musical repertoire, Munther Alraee, from Hebron, was a muezzin. Therefore, he knows and interprets with an incredible “accuracy” the Sufi repertoire that remains his favorite field.
Firas el Qazzaz
Firas, the current muezzin of the al-Aqsa Mosque, enjoys a glorified status among the Muslim community of Jerusalem. He continues a family tradition that goes back more than 500 years. According to him, his voice is a gift from God and he works to honor it by filling the mosque with its deep and resonant tone.
