Bright World Ensemble

“Mystics, Poets and Saints – into the ecstatic state”.

From Rumi to Thomas Merton, Hafeez and other mystics and spiritual masters from many traditions, this material has no boundaries other than to open the heart to an awareness of the Divine not bound by any tradition. The music draws from all traditions with influences of eastern music, western classical music, folk influences, modern abstract music, synthesized and acoustic instruments in a spontaneous response to the poetry. Often dance is added to the poetry and music, but no 2 performances are ever the same with this eclectic mix.

          Led by John Wubbenhorst’s varied background of playing many types of world music and his experience of meditation with many spiritual masters, the group takes the audience on a journey deep into consciousness and the ecstatic God intoxicated experience.
