Turkish Mystic Sufi musician Latif Bolat will present music, poetry, Sufi
mystic stories and images from the ancient land of Turkey.
Latif Bolat plays Turkish Folk Music and devotional Sufi songs which are
called Ilahi and Nefes, from the Anatolian peninsula. The lyrics of
Ilahis or Nefeses are taken largely from the great mystic poets Yunus
Emre, Niyazi Misri and many other ancient troubadours of Turkey. The
program also includes sacred ballads composed by Latif Bolat. Throughout
the program, devotional poetry will be recited from 13th Century Sufi
poets Yunus Emre and Rumi, and images of Turkish people and scenery will
be reflected on a screen.
One of the most well-known Turkish musicians in the US, Bolat possesses a
vast repertoire, ranging from Sufi devotional songs and Turkish Folk music
to classical pieces. His mesmerizing performances draw on ancient texts
and employ traditional instrumentation such as the baglama (long necked
lute), and he is often accompanied by other Turkish traditional
instruments such as oud, bendir and ney flute. Now residing in New Mexico
and Turkey, Mr.Bolat has presented his music all across America, Canada,
India, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Bulgaria, Turkey,
Philippines, England and many other international locations. In addition
to his Carnegie Hall concerts and lectures, he has recorded 4 very
successful CDs, made many TV and radio appearances and composed music for
the PBS Documentary “Mohammed: Legacy of a Prophet” and George Lucas’s TV
series “Young Indiana Jones”. He is also the co-author of a Turkish Sufi
poetry book titled “Quarreling with God” which is published by White Cloud
Books (Oregon, 2008).
