Legendary Sufi master – Sain Zahoor comes to the NCEM York
There is always loads of good stuff going on in York but I felt this warranted an extra mention:
National Centre for Early Music – Sunday 9 October 7:30pm
‘It is impossible not to feel overwhelmed by the passion by which Zahoor delivers the sacred verses’
Sain Zahoor is a Sufi street musician from Pakistan with a voice that soars and entrances, taking you beyond showbiz, beyond entertainment, beyond daily cares. Self-taught and illiterate, the 70 year-old Zahoor embodies the cultural wealth and soul of Pakistan’s popular street culture. A winner of the prestigious BBC World Music Award, Zahoor has taken his simple but uncompromisingly powerful message of spiritual love and tolerance all over the world. Most recently his distinctive voice was featured in the soundtrack to the BBC Film’s “West is West”, the follow up to the hugely successful film “East is East”.
