The Lian Ensemble presents a bouquet of Mystical Persian stories and music, that can liberate and heal your soul.

Through music and storytelling, this concert celebrates the mystical voice of love and longing for union with the Beloved. In mystical terminology, "love" and "heart" mean something higher than the conventional usage would suggest. Since the true beauty of the mystical meaning of these words can only be hinted at, stories are one of the best mediums for presenting a clarification of such expressions. In this concert, Persian mystics Rumi, Attar, Hallaj, Rabeh and Bayazid shed light on a better understanding of "love" and "heart" from the mystical point of view.
