Istanbul: Whirling Dervishes Performance

Ankara, Turkey

Cancellation Allowed



Minimum Persons : 0

Maximum Persons : 50


The performance of Sufis or Semazen is called a Sema. The Sema ritual is a form of Sufi dance and was born out of Rumi’s inspiration. In the Sema, Semazens, who are also called “whirling dervishes,” whirl, not to self-induce a trance, as some believe, but rather to reflect universal truth, that everything, in existence, revolves. The program starts with a video introductory film and a classical Turkish music concert performed by a traditional orchestra for 15 minutes. Then, the ceremony starts and lasts for about 45 minutes under the amazing lighting and mystic atmosphere of Hodjapasha.
