Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The dervish s whirling is a meditation communion and contemplation set to music; the calm center of a spiritual cyclone. Sufi Splendor: Music for Whirling Meditation captures the music that drives this resplendent and timeless practice. Serpentine ney (flute), melodic santoor, impassioned singing and ancient frame drum form a hypnotic rhythmic engine, building in intensity and carrying the listener to whirling ecstasy. Recorded in India s Ishvani Kendra monastery, Sufi Splendor: Music for Whirling Meditation features seasoned musicians, masters of the sema a (Sufi ceremony), performing this irresistible music that propelled the original trance dancers. The Persian mystic poet Rumi, founder of the Mevlana Dervish brotherhood, wrote, ...Music uplifts the soul to realms above. The ashes glow, the latent fires increase. We listen and are fed with joy and peace. Immensely enjoyable for straight listening, truly indispensable for inner exploration, Sufi Splendor: Music for Whirling Meditation places the listener at the tranquil heart of that latent fire.

Review

Splendor invokes the heart and spirit of the Persian whiling dervish dancing between the material and cosmic realms. Driven by the insatiable rhythm of frame drums, djembe, tabla and other world percussion these tracks allow you to experience the connection between movement, spirit and sound. A seductive swirl of flute, stringed instruments and haunting vocals are effortlessly woven together enhancing the hypnotic eastern vibe." --Yogabasics.com

This wonderful CD combines the sensual beauty of the middle eastern rhythyms with the uplifting, entrancing spirituality of the chants. Each of the three long tracks builds from a simple beginning, increasing in tempo and passion. This is a wonderful CD for meditation, particulary active meditation (the whirling of the title, dance, etc.). I highly recommend it for anyone interested in Sufi traditions and/or middle eastern music.

This is the first time I have listened to Sufi music and I am impressed. The music is spiritually uplifting, but one must focus in order to really "feel" it.

The Sufis are a small group of mystics who emphasize the esoteric aspect of the Islamic religion. They have become better known through the fame of the Persian poet Rumi. The Sufis are essentially Muslim Gnostics, focusing more on one's inner experience of the divine rather than ritual and purely intellectual knowledge (although the latter has its place).

The first two tracks on this CD are rather long, but when listening to them it seems like time just melts away. They gradually build up in intensity, which corresponds to the whirling Dervish dance. You don't have to be a Dervish to appreciate this fine eastern music.

This CD is okay, but I don't find it as transformative as I've found other Sufi music, which sadly I do not know the names of those artists. The singer has a lovely voice and the instruments are well played but it definitely did not put me in the required state for whirling meditation which I have experience elsewhere.

a listener in a review wrote "it definitely did not put me in the required state for whirling meditation which I have experience elsewhere"... and that's ok, each of us is vibrating at a different place and we may receive the same music differently. I find it beautiful very uplifting, for whirling, dancing or simply listening a great musical composition with genuine indian musical elements and spirit...
