Where Is the Door to the Tavern?
Hafiz (14th c.) translated by Daniel Ladinsky
A wild setting of a selection from the anthology "The Gift”, poetry of the great Sufi poet Hafiz, translated/adapted by Daniel Ladinsky. Hafiz often wrote of his being intoxicated by God, and in this text, I was taken by his desire and willingess to see everything as a potential "door to God." This rowdy, rhythmic celebration, accompanied by double bass and pitched water-filled bottles was most definitely inspired by blowing across the mouths of longnecks while imbibing at my local brewpub!
