Falsa Live at The Rotunda!
Doors at 8 pm, with performance shortly thereafter
Formed in West Philly, 14th century Sufi music described as a "cure for alienation" and one that's "not about means to ends but about meaning and transcendence". The effect of listening to Falsa is to be transported both inwards and across centuries of joys, sorrows and longings. https://whyy.org/articles/philly-musician-umer-piracha-journeys-home-in-sufi-music/
Umer Piracha on Vocals, Tom Deis and Paul Arendt on Bass and Guitars/Harmonium, Roshni Samlal on Tabla, and Greg Foran on Drums. https://www.falsamusic.com/
