Anuraag Dhoundeyal


Sufism - what's the song and dance all about?!

Submitted Jan 15, 2016

The objective of the talk is to collectively understand and explore Sufism; but more importantly to sing, dance, and have a good time!


Today, everyone seems to be talking about Sufism. In this talk-cum-live-music-session we will explore Sufism through mystic poetry, lots of music, and movement. The audiences will get a peek into what Sufism is all about... how it became so widespread... and what, for crying out aloud, is the song and dance all about?!
