Hemelse zang en draaiende derwisjen
Damascus is een van de belangrijkste centra van het soefisme, de vrijzinnige, mystieke stroming binnen de islam. In de Syrische hoofdstad is Nourredine Khourchid een begrip. Behalve begenadigd zanger van Koranverzen is hij een meester van de soefizang. Zijn stem wordt ‘diep en hemels’ genoemd en vormt de perfecte basis voor de wervelende dans van de derwisjen in hun wijd uitwaaierende, witte gewaden. Door hun eindeloos repeterende cirkeldansen raken niet alleen zij in hogere sferen: ook het publiek raakt vaak - aangenaam! - bedwelmd.

Bio

Initiated at the age of five years by his father, Sheikh Abu al-Nur, the Muslim mystic ritual, Khourshid Nureddin, born in 1966 in Damascus, is also held in his country, one of the greatest reciters Koran.
While at the university level, it is paradoxically-economist, it is to the spiritual path he is heading. His mastery of Koranic recitation allows him to control perfectly inshd (religious song).

The deep voice and heavenly Noureddin accompanied only daf (percussion) seems to materialize by the almost metaphysical presence of the whirling dervishes.
In this infinite whirl us back to the original founder of a ritual, where the earth and air seem to merge, we find the universal movement prerogative of the Turkish Mevlevi and their Arabic equivalent of Syria, whose order Mawlawiyya was created by the great Jalal al-Din al-Rumi (1207-1273) settled in Konya (Anatolia).
