Enjoy the Rhythm at Sufi Sutra International Music Festival

by Madhav Srinivasan 1718 days ago

Sufi Sutra International Music Festival is a one-of-its-kind music festival, which glorifies Sufi music. This festival also has workshops and exhibitions apart from the regular performances by renowned Sufi artists. Here’s a sneak peek into the festival

Sufi Sutra International music festival is a three-day music extravaganza that involves some of the topmost Sufi musicians from around eight countries. This is a free music festival and also includes music workshops in the day, shops, Q and A corner and may food stalls. People visiting this festival can also interact with the participants and musicians.

The major reason that makes this event special is the growing popularity of Sufi music. However, most people are still unaware of the opportunities and depth of this field. The main aim of this festival is to put Sufi music in a global platform and educate the younger audience about it. Apart from Indian, Sufi musicians are generally from the countries of Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Tajikistan. The participants in the music fest are also generally from these countries.

In each edition of the festival, the organizers try to blend in the ideas of harmony, truth, peace and self-belief through music. Scores of Sufi musicians participate in the festival. The exhibitions and workshops designed to increase the reach of this kind of music is the major attraction point in this festival.

Sufism basically preserves most of the mystical and spiritual aspects of the Islam culture and religion. This music was originated by the idea that, one listening to this music experiences himself transcending his physical realm into a spiritual one. An example of this kind of state is the Whirling Dervish, who enters meditative states while dancing.

Sufi Sutra International Music Festival witnesses a large participation each year, and it is regarded as one of the most important festivals in the genre of Sufi music.
