In his US debut as a soloist, acclaimed baglama (plucked lute) virtuoso and vocalist Erdal Erzincan performs the exquisite and deeply symbolic music of the Alevi, a mystical Sufi order that boasts more than twenty million followers in Turkey. Erdal will perform on a variety of baglamas, and sing folk and sacred songs that aim to bring the listener into its trance-like realm by interweaving ecstatic rhythms with sensual melodic phrases.
