The Psalms of Ali Ufki, Cambridge, MA, Apr 6

Ali Ufki'nin Mezmur'lari / The Psalms of Ali Ufki

This concert will feature sacred and liturgical Muslim, Jewish and Christian music in an inspirational musical exploration. Through music and spirituality, we celebrate the similarities between our faiths and build bridges of understanding and trust.

Ali Ufki, born Wojciech Bobowski as a Polish Christian, converted to Islam after his capture by the Ottoman Turks at the age of 30, and became renowned as a musician and translator in the imperial court. His own collection of Turkish psalms based on the Genevan Psalter provides the starting point for this celebration at the intersection of Judaism, Greek Orthodoxy, Turkish Sufism, and Protestant Christianity.

Where: Harvard Fogg Art Museum
When: Wednesday, April 6, 8:30pm
Price: $15

Produced by Dunya ( www.dunyainc.org ) in collaboration with Center of Middle Eastern Studies, Center of Jewish Studies at Harvard and Harvard Art Museums
