Acid-Jazz/Ambient Groove and Rumi's Poetry: Safar Ensemble

Sit back and enjoy the groovy sound of this amazing Nu-Jazz band from Switzerland, Safar Ensemble...with the captivating vocals of the Bengali-born, Ahmad Mohammad who's heavily influenced by Sufism and Rumi's love-drenched poetry...he sings Rumi's famous 'Moon Dance' poem.

The moon has become a dancer at this festival of love.

This dance of light, this sacred blessing, this divine love

beckons us to a world beyond, that only lovers can see with their

eyes of fiery passion.

They are the chosen ones who have surrendered.

Once they were particles of light, now they are the radiant sun.

They have left behind the world of defeat-full games.

They are the privileged lovers who created new worlds

with their eyes of fiery passion.
