September 13 Singing Mobile Sculpture

The Hawthorne Eagles is a meetup today of art projects in mobile trailers. Art cars too. 4904 SE Hawthorne 11AM-? Free

St Johns has a sculpture park. Who would have known? Now you do and can see it at Green Anchors Studios 8972 North Bradford. Noon-6 Free

Qawwali is the musical expression of devotional ecstasy in Sufism. The performers call themselves a party. I have been fortunate to see the great Qawwāl Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. There are some great remixes of his work available.

Fanna-Fi Allah is a party of Western Qawwali performers. They tour Pakistan and are making a documentary of their performances and meetings with musicians there. They are unusual in having a woman performing. And I have been fortunate to see Fanna-Fi Allah in a back yard concert.

The Fanna-Fi Allah Qawwali Party performs this evening. Presented by Kalakendra at the First Baptist Church, 909 SW 11th. 7:30PM $20 advance, $25 door
