TimnaTal Music presents a night of Turkish Sufi mystic music, poetry and images at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, at the Village Homes Community Center, 2661 Portage Bay Ave. East.

Latif Bolat, a Turkish singer, composer and scholar, will present a repertoire ranging from Sufi devotional songs and Turkish folk music to classical pieces. His performances draw on ancient texts and employ traditional instrumentation on the baglama, a long-necked lute.

Bolat is a native of the Turkish Mediterranean town of Mersin. After receiving his degree in folklore and music at Gazi University in Ankara, he taught traditional music throughout the country. He went on to manage Ankara Halk Tiyatrosu, a musical theater company that performed traditional musical plays.

Bolat also received  degrees in Turkish history and Middle Eastern religion and politics from Ankara University and a master’s degree in business administration from San Francisco State University.

Creating an intimate, “storytelling” atmosphere, he explains Turkish folk and mystic music and its sociopolitical and cultural elements. The performance entertains and invites the audience to ponder questions such as how major sociopolitical factors influence culture and the art it produces.

As an important part of the presentation, Turkish devotional poetry from the 13th century mystics Rumi and Yunus Emre as well as later Turkish mystic poets are also sprinkled throughout the program.

Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door. For information, call (530) 867-1032, email info@timnatalmusic.com or visit www.timnatalmusic.com.
