Amir Vahab, honored as both a peacemaker and virtuoso, is one of New York’s most celebrated and distinguished composers and vocalists of Sufi and folk music. Weaving fiery instrumentals and songs of the historic lands of the Middle East and Central Asia, his work transcends political boundaries while maintaining traditional and mystical sensibilities. His music symbolizes diversity-in-unity and, while rooted in tradition, has been influenced by contemporary sounds. Amir teaches and lectures to private and group classes in universities, libraries, museums, and cultural centers and organizes music therapy and sound healing workshops.
During these two weeks we bring together teachers from the Sivananda tradition and diverse faiths and lineages to exchange and share, to learn from each other.
