Great Poets Series

Great Poets Series

Poets from South Asia, Iran, Turkey, and Spain headlined the sold-out Great Poets Series, a five-part series showcasing poets from Rumi to Khusrau through performers from Iran, India, Canada, and beyond.

 

“When speaking of the arts of Muslim civilizations, it is impossible to separate music from poetry,” says Head of Performing Arts Amir Alibhai. “Nowhere is this more clear than in the music of Abida Parveen, whose repertoire is steeped in the words and imaginations of Sufi poets.” Alibhai adds that the Museum is “proud to be partnering with a world-class institution like Roy Thomson Hall. Making connections between cultures and through our partners in the arts community is extremely important to the Aga Khan Museum.”
