Rachid Gholam Presents: Spirit of Tarab

7 December '18 at 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm

The second of a two-part concert series, MARSM is showcasing the enduring legacy of spiritual performance culture, partnering with iconic Moroccan singer Rachid Gholam and his full ensemble to showcase the worldwide premiere of ‘Spirit of Tarab’.

‘Spirit of Tarab’ presents a spiritual and colorful performance, where Gholam’s captivating voice invites masterful renditions of legendary Sufi figures such as Maulana Rumi and Sheikh Ibn Arabi, and explores the the expansive history of Sufi music and philosophy. Ranging geographically from the Persian Mountains to the Andalusian coast, Gholam covers the reach of Sufi art and philosophy, uncovering the Iraqi Maqam, Aleppo Qadud and the Andulsian Muwashahat on its journey through time.

This concert has been made possible through the support of Arts Council England.
