Transcendence: A Sufi Music Festival

Walid Ben Selim, France 
with Jiang Nan, guzhen zither

Travel to France for a performance by the extraordinary singer Walid Ben Selim, accompanied by musician Jiang Nan on the zither. Born in Casablanca, Ben Selim’s inspiration comes from the great Islamic poets as well as the Sufi poets of Morocco. In addition to working with traditional texts, he sings and recites his own poetry and experiments with spoken word, rap, and hip hop. Ben Selim will join us live to speak about his music and answer audience questions. He will be introduced by Alain Weber, artistic director of the World Sacred Spirit Festival.
