Sacred Music, Friday, May 3, 2019
Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto, Mill Valley, CA
Celebrate the sacred

The Songs of the Soul Sacred Music Festival 2019 was held Friday, May 3, in the light, airy Mill Valley Community Center. Its natural woods and generous use of glass made it a perfect location for the sacred songs of Kitka Trio and Taneen Sufi Music Ensemble.

Blending their rich voices a capella, the Kitka Trio, three members of Kitka women’s vocal ensemble, presented songs from around the world and across the ages. With a wide variety of melodies and messages, their songs celebrated love and marriage, birth and death, work and harvest, praise and ritual. True to the meaning of “Kitka” – which is “bouquet” – they brought to the audience a masterful bouquet of sounds from the hauntingly delicate to the resoundingly energetic.

After an intermission, the fragrance of Sufi devotion, both ancient and modern, was present as Taneen Sufi Music Ensemble brought to life the longing of Sufi poets set to original music. Many of the songs presented by Taneen (meaning “divine melody”) were translations of the ecstatic love poetry of great Sufi masters, wrapped with sacred Sufi chant. Their mesmerizing performance transcended time and space and opened hearts throughout the room with their message of peace and light.
