RUMI
Preparing for the journey through the currents of thought in North Africa
Observe the bridge between thought and music.
Observe the different genres, the different harmonies…
We will knock on the doors of history and listen …
From the beginning to today Before leaving this cycle of life
We will go to the highest places
In one of your realms of stillnessWe will pass by maestro Battiato to observe the shadow of light …
