When pure poetry melts into the Urdu language which again melts into Sufi music; gives birth to Sukhan; directed by actor, poet Om Bhutkar Sukhan. As poet Kahlin Gibran says : “Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,That we may record our emptiness.” Sukhan is a like a tree with poems that graces the sky. Its happiness, its contentment, it's compassion. Come witness Sukhan in it's 50th show in a mesmerizing evening. "Sukhan is a 3 hours long performance (mehfil) with a short interval, enriched by the plethora of compositions of Urdu literature, Hindustani Classical music and Sufi music. A performance enriched by gems like Urdu story telling (Daastaan-goi), recitation of Ghazals and Nazms, recitation of Urdu prose, musical rendition of Ghazals and Qawwalis."
