  1. Very impressive! That is really a historical gallery for Sama dance for showing one of the characteristic traditional practices of dervishes and Sufi’s. It is so exciting to have this eastern-derived, Rumi’s-based phenomena in the metropolitan greater Washington DC area in birth anniversary of Rumi in late 2018.
    Perfect job, and thanks artist Mr. Ardavan, for providing these artistic photos and report!
