In the seven centuries since the death of Jelaluddin Rumi in 1273, the world has come to know and thrill to his sacred poetry. In concert with the tabla and sitar, his writing is part of a Sufi tradition that is believed to excite "spiritual heroism"; embracing the holiness of love, lamentation, battle, and the longing for God. Rumi: Voice of Longing collects nearly 100 of Rumi's most memorable quatrains, translated and performed by Rumi scholar Coleman Barks.

These works reflect universal themes: the search for the highest truth, the mystery of surrender, the longing to overcome ego imprisonment. Rumi: Voice of Longing captures the silence, the love, and the playfulness that make each experience with this work one of sacred wonder. With sitar by David Whetstone and tabla accompaniment by Marcus Wise. Special guest appearance by Robert Bly.
