One love, believe it or not

Miriam Ohevetel is in love with God. Amazingly, this does not mean she’ll be sending hate mail to S Sorrensen or stoning unbelievers. No, this Israeli woman shares the joyous, inclusive love she has found through her closeness to God by using her musical talent.

Miriam’s ensemble Soulsong presents their Australian show Closeness to God at the holy Mullum Civic Hall on Saturday, January 23.

Miriam sings her melodies to King David’s psalms as well as to Rumi’s mystic poetry. She is accompanied on sitar by Tavor Ben Dor, a musician and peace activist. And by a percussionist.

This one-and-a-half hour show includes songs and prayers based on inspiring verses of wisdom taken from the Jewish and Sufi (Muslim) spiritual traditions. It’s revealing just how much these traditions have in common. And it’s good to hear someone is trying to make them both relevant to this new age.

The gig starts at 8pm and tickets are $25/20 from Mullum Books and www.kupromotions.oztix.com.au. Or $30/25 at the door.
