Oakland, CA: Rumi's Caravan: Recitation of World Poetry -- benefiting MECA
September 10, 2016

For fifteen years Rumi’s Caravan has inspired audiences by weaving together poems by Rumi, Hafez, Machado, Rilke, Yeats, Mary Oliver, Joy Harjo, Naomi Shihab Nye, David Whyte and other poets from cultural and spiritual traditions across the world. The presenters create an improvised poetic conversation with musical accompaniment. Moving through moods of prayer and grief to humor and celebration, the Caravan always highlights the beauty of the spoken word.
