Sri Sarveshwari Samooh (Sonoma Yoga Ashram) will be hosting a fundraising event for the whole family featuring world renowned poet and scholar Coleman Barks, author of Essential Rumi, and Open Secret: Versions of Rumi, on Wednesday, May 5th, 2004 at the Friedman Center in Santa Rosa. Doors will open for this event at 6:00pm with a pre-show bazaar including food and gifts. The concert begins at 7:30pm.
The concert features a performance by Richard Hite on Sacred Gongs followed by Coleman Barks with an eloquent performance of his modern translations of the 13th century poet Rumi, while being accompanied by Marcus Wise on Tabla and David Whetstone on Sitar.
