WRR 101 Focus on the Arts: Verdigris presents Rumi’s poetry like we’ve never heard (or seen) before

“This work has been in progress – and in process – for three years,” says Sam Brukhman, founding Artistic Director of the Verdigris Ensemble, speaking of their world premiere of “SHAMS.” The production includes poetry of Rumi, set to original music by internationally recognized composer Sahba Aminikia and improvisational art by Kevork Mourad. Hear Sam tell WRR’s Amy Bishop more about the innovative project in this feature.
