Taneen Sufi Music



Taneen Sufi Music Ensemble: Formed in 1996 under the guidance of Sufi Masters Shah Nazar Seyed Ali Kianfar and Dr. Nahid Angha, founders of the International Association of Sufism, the members of Taneen reside in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, U.S.A. Sufism is the mystical heart of Islam. As seekers on the Sufi path, Taneen’s music springs from the heart of prayer, inner practice, and spiritual discipline and is a celebration of heart’s longing to feel connected to the source of mystery behind this reality and the source of peace within us all. Taneen sings as an offering and a service intended to increase tranquility in the world. With an authentic fusion of Middle Eastern and Western influences, Taneen creates new, original melodies; yet their music is deeply rooted in the Sufi tradition in its intention and inspiration. Taneen primarily sings the love poetry of the great masters (such as Jalaleddin Rumi, Hafiz, Omar Khayam and Shah Maghsoud) in English translation, making the profound message of unity and love accessible to all audiences. Taneen has performed locally and internationally at events that focus on peace-building, human rights, and interfaith understanding and cooperation, including such events as the Sufism Symposium; Women’s Partnership for Peace in the Middle East Inaugural Conference, Oslo, Norway; and at the Parliament of World’s Religions conference in Barcelona, Spain.
