Rumi: Voice of Longingby Rumi, Coleman Barks (Translator), David Whetstone (Music Score by), Marcus Wise (Music Score by)
Seven centuries after his death, Jelaluddin Rumi continues to thrill the world with his sacred poetry. Here are nearly 100 of the Sufi poet’s most memorable quatrains, translated and performed by scholar Coleman Barks. These works illuminate the mystery of surrender, the longing for God, our search for the highest truth, and more. Rumi: Voice of Longing captures the silence, the love, and the playfulness that make each experience with this work one of sacred wonder. With sitar and tabla accompaniment. Special guest appearance by Robert Bly.
