April 10 | Sunday - pre-concert workshop

Join us to explore what lies "behind the scenes" of the three traditions featured in the evening concert (following at 7:30pm also at West County Herb).

We'll learn, in an enjoyable and accessible way, from Eliyahu Sills (reed flutes and oud) and Jason Ranjit Parmar (tabla and percussion) about the foundations of the rhythms, melodies, scales, and approaches to improvisation in the music of Turkey, Northern India and North Afric...a. They will share the cultural and spiritual aspects of the music as well, to give us greater insight into the context from which it springs.

Through musical demonstrations and explanations, Eliyahu and Ranjit will help you understand how the music is constructed, what effects the different Ragas & Makams (musical modes in Indian & Middle Eastern music) are said to have, and how to count and feel some of the interesting rhythms that will be performed in the concert. Participants will also have an opportunity to sing some of the chants (illahis), and with guidance, some of musical concepts.

No need to be a trained musician or singer...the idea is to learn enough to deepen your experience of what you hear later, during the concert itself. Dive in!

(Partially underwritten by the California Folklife Project, "intercultural understanding through the arts," a (501c3) non-profit, tax exempt organization. Bhavani Judith Cook Tucker, Executive Director)

  The Ecstatic Soul

A night of ecstatic poetry and sacred music with

Michael Meade & The Qadim Ensemble

Portland OR, 7:00 pm
First Unitarian Church, 1121 Main St

You are invited to an evening of ecstatic poetry and sacred music, a combined song that voices the longings of the heart and whispers the nature of the soul. In dark and troubled times ancient peoples turned to the poets and mystics, not to escape reality, but to find solace, understanding, and inspiration. The mystics say that something that turns within us helps to make the world turn. They say that there is a "light seed grain inside; you fill it with yourself, or it dies." Come fill yourself with poetry and music.

Mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade will weave ecstatic poetry with ancient "wisdom tales", while The Qadim Ensemble offers devotional music of the Middle East. Qadim celebrates the rich spiritual heritage found in traditional Arabic, Jewish, Turkish Sufi, Greek, and Moroccan music.

Tickets: $15

Click for Tickets!


In dark and troubled times, ancient peoples turned to the poets and mystics to find solace, understanding, and inspiration. Those old "knowers" knew that whenever we are lost or "at a loss", the soul is nearby. For the soul finds its way by touching darkness and releasing the hidden light. "Allow dark times to season you," says Hafiz. Rumi advises that somehow "your own desire will find an opening."

You are invited to an evening of ecstatic poetry and sacred music, a combined song that voices the longings of the heart and whispers words of Dark Wisdom that have encouraged the life-seekers for centuries.

Mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade will weave ecstatic poetry with ancient "wisdom tales", while The Qadim Ensemble offers devotional music of the Middle East. Qadim celebrates the rich spiritual heritage found in traditional Arabic, Jewish, Turkish Sufi, Greek, and Moroccan music.
