I had an opportunity to perform with Zia Nath's Sufi Splendour group at this years Kala Ghoda Arts Festival (KGAF). KGAF is a leading Arts festival held every year in the Kala Ghoda precinct of South Mumbai.
Sufi Whirling and sacred dances are a form of meditation. When you perform them in public the audience get a glimpse of meditativeness. Gurdjieff always encouraged his students to give public performances to deepen their practice.
The show was on the 11th of February. I couldn't help noticing the date palindrome, 11/02/2011!
Here are some photos from the show. These were clicked by a fellow student, Aparna.
