The Amir Vahab Ensemble performed at Stony Brook University’s Charles B. Wang Center this past Wednesday, Oct. 2. The performance included traditional Iranian and Turkish folk music and the samâ, known to many in the West as the Whirling Dervish Dance.
“Sufi Songs of Love by Amir Vahab” transported the audience to the ancient Middle East and gave them a glimpse of the foundations of the culture. The audience was reminded through beautiful poetry, music and song, that we are all one.
Students at Stony Brook University have been celebrating Black History Month by taking part in and organizing numerous events around campus.
