Rumi Rocks the Coffeehouse at Greenshire
Feb 08, 2014 02:05AM
Guitarist and songwriter Michael London and poet Lisa DeVuono will celebrate love with a concert and reading celebrating the poetry of Rumi, the great 13th-century Sufi poet, from 4 to 7 p.m., February 16, at Greenshire Arts Consortium, in Quakertown.
London has always been drawn to ecstatic experiences and the feeling of a larger reality that was bigger than the self, and in Rumi he found the possibility of transcendence and words that were just as powerful as the music he has always felt at his core. He also resonates with the Medieval lyrics that speak so directly to us, with central themes and issues of living with passion and true joy.
London’s musical journey began with singing, and then he went on to become an instrumentalist, learning to improvise and accompany dancers with atmospheric and lyrical guitar work.
