Avaes Mohammad - Reflections on a Dot, a Retelling of Mystical Poetry

Part of Alchemy

Contemplate with performance poet Avaes Mohammad, as he melds original verses and couplets from ancient Sufi poetry with a live electronic underscore provided by Jaydev Mistry.

Speaking with a message as timeless and as needed as ever, Mohammad delivers a form that is influenced by the original works of Shah Latif, Kabir, Guru Nanak and more.

Ancient home to a rich diversity of faiths and culture, the Indo-Pak subcontinent is also home to a uniquely ingrained philosophy of oneness and universal kinship.
