Poetic Visions Tour

On Saturday, November 12, (SCENE) Metrospace, 110 Charles St., will host Poetic Visions, with opening musical act Wisaal.

This national traveling concert tour features spiritually inspired folk music and hip hop poetry performed by prominent Muslim musicians. It is part of a national tour that chooses musicians/songwriters that move beyond simple, one dimensional songs and reconnect to the great classical Muslim writers such as Rumi, Attar, Imam Shafai, Imam Ali, Muhammad Iqbal, as well as great Western poets such as Shakespeare, Milton, Dante and Bob Dylan. More information can be found at poeticvisiontour.com.

The Arabic fusion group Wisaal hails from East Lansing.

This event is organized by the MSU Muslim Studies Program as part Migrations of Islam, a multifaceted project focused on Muslim American cultural expression. They can be found at facebook.com/islammigrations.
