The Wee Kim Wee Centre, SMU and Turkish Cultural Centre cooperated in a Turkish Whirling Dervishes Sema performance at SMU, last Saturday.
Audiences were amazed with the show. There was an overwhelming response to the programme by the invitees. Chairs in the saloon did not meet the need of the curious crowd gathered for this event. Dervishes were so happy with the attention gathered by this great number of spectators and they enjoyed the atmosphere with their Singaporean hosts.
The ancient sacred ritual of the Sema performance of the Mevlevi order of Sufism is regarded as one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing expressions of spirituality and art. With origins in Turkey and inspired by the great 13th century mystic, poet and philosopher, Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi, the ritual seeks divinity and maturity, carrying his message of love, brotherhood and tolerance.
