featuring Youth & Karen Ruimy
6 Leicester Place
ZIK’R has been created by celebrated musician and producer Youth (Pink Floyd/Killing Joke), together with the acclaimed flamenco dancer and singer Karen Ruimy. The show follows the ancient tradition of eternal music and follows Flamenco’s journey from India to Spain.
Karen Ruimy and Youth are joined by an ensemble of extraordinary multi talented musicians bringing together Qawali, Egyptian and Moroccan traditional sounds, with the wild intensity of the flamenco spirit. ZIK’R’s lyrical Inspiration has been found in thirteenth century Sufi mystics, the poetry of Lorca and the native mystical traditions of dance and music throughout Europe, Middle East and India. The name of the show is taken from the Islamic incantation to Allah during prayer.
