Sufi musicians.

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

Some pics from yesterday.

The ney player is Hamza from Granada and the cello player is Salma from Alicante. He has been Muslim several years and has been connected to the Murabitun group of Sheikh abdl Qadr Dallas and is going to visit Sheikh Nazim Adil next month in Cyprus. She is a new Muslim, only a few months in Islam and quite a rarity as a Spanish convert in the area where she lives.

First tuning up and a bit of practice.

Then a little discussion and planning.

Then concentration and (hopefully) inspiration.

The children were determined to get a look in too.

Finally the work pays off and we're ready for their first performance together.

After the dhikr at the Fonda, preparations are made.

First that ever important tune up.

Then Hamza makes an introduction in which he mentions meeting someone in Paris connected with whirling and ney playing, who (while not consciously being a murid) gets orders from Sheikh Nazim in his dreams , one of them being that he would meet a Spanish person with such and such a name and that he should help them because they wanted to become Muslim. Sure enough a little later he met the said person and helped him to become Muslim.

It seems like there might be a problem with the slippery floor and the spike of the cello,but it's soon solved ith the help of a cushion .. and we're off!

Inspiration seem to be "on tap" and was soon flowing ....

as was concentration

There were solos from both instruments,

and the harmony and balance of the two was appreciated by all.

Alhamduli'llah for the beauty and cultural diversity of Islamic culture.
