About Sama Waves
The name comes from the name of the Sufi ritual ‘mehfil-e-sama’, a gathering for spiritual listening. In the royal Mughal courts of the Indian subcontinent, these rituals were prescribed as a means of spiritual ascension and exploration as well as entertainment, carrying the listener to ecstatic forms of bliss and evolving their consciousness through contact with the divine love of the Almighty.
“Today you still see these rituals occurring frequently at the shrines of Sufi saints, mosques, and even family homes. As someone who experienced the transformative power of consciously listening to sacred music, I hope to provide a space for both listeners and performers to explore their inner-standing of creativity and the human soul in these intimate monthly concerts.” – Samad @sama.wave
