Fes Festival of World Sacred Music

Time and space, space for the self, space for others. The vital energy of place: to integrate, to open, to open oneself to the world more and more. It’s this vital contact, this link with the past, this journey within the soul and the profound essence of place, that allows us to welcome the future, to awaken ourselves to the wonders of the world, to say, as Jalaludin Rumi did eight centuries ago,

Come, whoever you are …
Even if you have fallen a thousand times,
Come, whoever you are.
This is not the door to despair.
Just as you are.
