Omid Sufi play music in the backyard show Cologne at the end of the audience in the Cologne backyard Salon sang with European and Oriental instruments. The simple and interesting sounds coming from the Persian frame drum DAF, guitar and flute, worked very strongly. Omid are Anne-Marie van den Bercken, Anneloes van Hout, both today. Still a guest playing at each concert. In Cologne, Eva Knoche played the DAF, a traditional Sufi instrument, which is still popular in the Iran. In the Iran an ancient musical tradition survived over the centuries, although repeatedly raised by fundamentalist preacher pages persecution against musicians and bans on music and musicians were killed many Sufi. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out San Antonio Spurs. Even today fundamentalist believers of music are very hostile. But the music is not to displace from the Iran, musicians like Mohammed Resa Schadscharian prove it. “Stop the flute as she told, and how she singing complains by the pain of separation”. (Mewlana Dschalaledin Rumi, Persian mystic who was born and died in Konya in Balkh) Rumi lived approximately 800 years ago, at a time when the Mongols devastated half of Asia. Even today people in East and West touch his seals. In addition to the beautiful images of his language, his poems have rhythms that penetrate deep into the heart of the listener, if they are recited in the right way. So Bercken sounded Anne-Marie van den at the beginning of the concert her flute and it was longing and melancholy to Hakeem. In the course of the evening, seals of Rumi, Hafez and Seyed Azmayesh in German translation were recited and later played in the Persian language with the music, and Sung. An example of the love poetry: Navaie (soft touch) sadness and longing for you have the hidden Chambers of my heart filled. You’re in my heart as beautiful as Leila in the litter. Break not my heart, it’s just a wild bird that won’t recur, when it flew from the roof. I bear a thorn in my foot with ease, but how do I order with a mandrel that broke into my heart? Chorus is very friendly to everybody, only you’re cruel flower. Why? You can see your lovely face only five days in the year. Gently touched, gently touched many viewers were gently touched not only by the simplicity of the music impressed she enjoyed especially the silence after the music. “The thoughts come to rest,” said a spectator “and rises out of nowhere a joy and warmth.” Hilarious as it were for a reason. At the end, Omid sang the song of freedom for all people in the Iran that suppresses and be tormented and rise for their freedom. A sound sample can be found on the Web page Omid. The next concert ermine are back in Berlin, Hamburg and in may in Cologne. A touching experience. Whether at the end again all will sing with? Helmut N. fork
