World Music @ The Dance Hall: Latif Bolat
Globally known and revered, Sufi musician Latif Bolat plays saz
and sings devotionals by 13th century poets Yunus Emre, Mevlana
Rumi, as well as Turkish folk music. He will also recite ancient Turkish
Sufi poems and talk about the thousand years of Turkish Sufi
mystic tradition - its philosophy, arts, music and dances.

Turkish Mystic Sufi scholar and musician Latif Bolat will present music, poetry, Sufi mystic stories and images from the ancient land of Turkey.  

Latif Bolat plays Turkish Folk Music and devotional Sufi songs which are called Ilahi and Nefes, from the Anatolian peninsula.  The lyrics of Ilahis or Nefeses are taken largely from the great mystic poets Yunus Emre, Niyazi Misri and many other ancient troubadours of Turkey.   The program also includes sacred ballads composed by Latif Bolat. Throughout the program, devotional poetry will be recited from 13th Century Sufi poets Yunus Emre, Rumi, and images of Turkish people and scenery will be reflected on a screen.  

One of the most well-known Turkish musicians in the US, Bolat possesses a vast repertoire, ranging from Sufi devotional songs and Turkish Folk music to classical pieces.  Now residing in New Mexico and Turkey, Mr.Bolat has presented his music all across America, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Bulgaria, Turkey, Philippines, England and many other international locations.  In addition to his Carnegie Hall  concerts and lectures, he has recorded 4 very successful CDs, made many TV and radio appearances and composed music for the PBS Documentary Mohammed: Legacy of a Prophet and George Lucass TV series Young Indiana Jones. He is also the co-author of a Turkish Sufi poetry book titled Quarreling with God which is published by White Cloud Books (Oregon, 2008).
