CSUS to host a night of Sufi Culture

A festive evening of exotic arts and ancient philosophy can be experienced when "Sufi Celebration: Sufi Love Melodies" comes to California State University, Sacramento on Saturday, Dec. 14. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the University Union Ballroom.

The celebration will include traditional and modern Sufi music, slides of contemporary Sufi arts, crafts and architecture, poetry readings and a bit of Sufi philosophy. In addition, there will be a performance by the Shahmaghsoudi Sufi Zikr Choir, who will sing, chant and move to traditional Sufi instruments, including the daff and setar.

"This event should be a very positive, upbeat experience," says Lynn Wilcox, professor of counselor education and event coordinator. "I hope our guests walk away filled with love, hope and joy, and feel completely revitalized."

Sufism is of Islamic roots and blossomed in the 7th century. The principles behind Sufism are self-knowledge and self-discovery.

The celebration is presented by M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi, School of Sufism, and is sponsored by the CSUS Multi-Cultural Center.

Tickets are $14 general and $7 for students. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket office at (916) 278-4323, or by calling (916) 368-6883. Additional media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
