Meeting of Hearts (Kalplerin Buluşması) / Yinon Muallem
The influence of Sufi thought on outstanding poets of the Spanish tradition, and the deep marks it left on Jewish cultural history inspired Yinon Muallem to create “Meeting of Hearts”. “Meeting of Hearts” takes us to a deep, historical and spiritual journey of Sufism from the “Golden Era” in the Southern Spain to the land of great Sufi poet Yunus Emre, Anatolia. In this journey, the forgotten words as old as 8th century are revealed, and the sound of Sufism is reinvented through Yinon Muallem’s compositions with shimmering and mystical melodies.
Meeting of hearts profoundly displays the unities shared by Muslim and Jewish mystics on life and man’s relationship to God, with the aim of bringing the message of peace and tolerance through a strong sensual and spiritual experience.
With Meeting of Hearts, Muallem continues his musical journey to reach a vast place where music can freely exist, crossing the geographical, ethnic, cultural, and religious boundaries.
