The I International Festival of Mystic Music “The Touch of Eternity” will be held in Riga from 26 to 28 September 2014 to honour the birthday of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi – the great Persian poet and Sufi mystic, known as in the East, as in the West. UNESCO declared year 2007 as Rumi Year, coincided with the 800th anniversary of the Great Mystic’s birthday. Every person has something beyond the power of time and space in one’s life: Love, aspiration for ideals, desire to cognize secret matters. All Rumi’s poetry is woven of these eternal values, which makes it unique and vital. The Festival aims for giving an opportunity to feel the invisible bond between spiritual and material, between dream and reality.
The Festival symbolizes the inimitable bridge between faraway past and present, built on everlasting supports of beauty, harmony of sound, desire of unity in cultures and hearts. This Festival features music played on such rare musical instruments as the Tabla and the Setar, the Daf and the Ney, the Sarod and the Jambo, and others. The event unites the musicians from 8 countries. Their self-forgetting and masterful performance will help the audience to deepen into the magic world of music and to enter into the mystic fusion of Western and Eastern music.
