" This cry of the reed is fire, it is not wind/ whoever possesses not this fire, let him be naught!/ It is the fire of love that has set the reed aflame."
-- "The Song of the Reed", Jalaludin Rumi, trans. A.J. Arberry.
Rumi's "Song of the Reed" attributes the sweet sadness of the reed flute's song to its longing for the reed field of its birth, a metaphor of the longing of the human soul for its divine source. Through the ages Muslim artists, writers have shaped their own versions of the reed's song in art and verse.
Tonight, meet your Muslim neighbors and gain insight into a faith so much in the news through the universal language of the arts.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT for all our guests!
Enjoy FOOD from an international cuisine, CULTURAL DISPLAYS, ART & HENNA.
