Sufi music is a genre of musical expression to enchance the connection between the physical and spiritual aspects of the listener and performer in their devotion to God.
The Mevlevi order is known for their Sema (whirling) tradition. Vocal and musical performance are important components of the Sema ceremony.
Sema consists of seven parts; part three is an instrumental improvisation (taksim) with a reed (ney). It represents the first breath which gives life to everything. The Divine Breath.
Konya is the final resting place of Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī the 13th century poet whose followers established the Mevlevi order in his honor.
