Misaq-e-Ishq: The Covenant of Love

The Ismaili Centre, London, The Aga Khan Museum and The Harvard Club of the UK present:

Misaq-e-Ishq (The Covenant of Love)

misaq-e-ishq the covenant of love

Harvard Professor Ali Asani, Pakistani singer and author Ali Sethi, and Grammy-winning producer Noah Georgeson bring alive, through musical performance, the poetic consciousness of several legendary South Asian Muslim mystic poets as they extoll the transformative powers of ishq, interpreted variously as passion, devotion, ardor, commitment, or just plain love. Their poetry, spanning a thousand years, responds to the exigencies of their eras with an idiom that trumps orthodoxy, dissolves binaries, and invites audiences to understand and experience the human and divine through the all-encompassing lens of love.
