Electric Sufi with guest performers Zahabia Naveed.


Electric Sufi is a new project by sufi singer Sahra, instrumentalist Mina Salama, and producer Rupert Till. It draws upon ancient mystical traditions to create music that aims to inspire audiences to engage with environmental issues. The musicians call on a wide range of influences, including Sufi poetry, Coptic Christianity, Arabic music, ancient chant, and electronica, to create a syncretic mysticism that focuses on common ground within the ice flows and fire storms of climate change.

Brought up in a musical family, and embedded in Sufi traditions, Yaseen weaves her vocal lines across Till’s synthesized beats and textures. A former soloist in the Egyptian National Opera, Salama provides a perfect virtuosic counterpoint of nay, oud, duduk and saz. This compelling mix is presented in front of video material from environmental agencies and research projects, pointing out the need for all cultures and communities to come together to address our present climate emergency.

Zahabia Naveed will be playing the Dilruba, with her accompanist Ahmed Iqbal a Tabla player, She will be playing a few compositions in different raags and time cycles. Both performers are of pakistani heritage and Bradford based.

Intercultured Festival is supported and funded by Arts Council England, The Leap, Bradford Council and Platforma, Multiple venue partners include Common Space (Common Wealth Theatre), Kala Sangam, TiM, (University of Bradford) Bradford Libraries, Waterstones, Bradford Deaf Centre and Mary Magdalene Church
