About the producers

Production manager: Kohra Yuval Itach
Artistic manager: Gil Ron Shema
Content manager: Asim Shaul Bracha

6 months before the first Sufi festival we got together and started running with the idea. We saw many visions and many trails to follow, but what was clear to us is that we want to give place to the Sufi path, to its wisdom and beauty, and to all those inspired by it. We felt how important it is to share it, to pass it forward, to give it the proper place, and how meaningful it would be to gather everyone.

We decided to take this adventure to the unknown, coming with love, trust and shared vision.

It was heartwarming to see the enthusiasm it met in the world. So many joined us immediately. As soon as we started sharing the idea and working on it things had their own flow, developing organically, giving us the certainty that we are doing something right.

After an exciting first year it was clear to everyone that this festival has to move forward. We felt that something new was created, different than anything before, something that waited to burst out and finally got his place. Everything connected as perfectly as can be.

Ever since we keep moving, while listening carefully and letting the spirit of the festival to lead us.

It’s an honor to invite you all to be a part of this.
