    Sema The Sema of Sunni Mevlevis belongs to the Sunni sect of Islam, whereas Semah is a ritual dance of Alevism, which is a branch of Shi’a Islam. Although both fall under the umbrella of Islam, Alevis (who make up 20% of Turkish Muslims) are minorities in the Muslim community and have been historically disliked by the Sunni community.

    Nov 26,  · The Sema Ceremony commemorates the passing of Hz. Mevlana Jelaluddin RUMI, known in the west as a 13th-century mystic poet. He also founded the Mevlevi Sufi Order, still active worldwide years.

    Feb 04,  · Attributed to Rumi, the whirling dervish dance known as Sema was formalized in the 15th century. Each element is symbolic. The white skirt signifies the ego’s shroud. The camel-hair hat is the tombstone of the ego. The removal of the semazen ’s (dancer’s) black cloak symbolizes spiritual rebirth.

    The whirling dance in Turkey is part of the religious ceremony "Sema" of the Mevlevi Order. Originating in the 13th century in the city of Konya, the order is a sect of Sufism, which pursues spiritual perfection and worship of God.

    Sema, A Mystic Dance Of Ali Sect: Notes Track 6: "garip" should rather be translated as "eccentric" or "exotic" in this case; "foreign" would be "yabancı". Track 12 incorrectly spelt as "Besili Hoyrat" (due to the fact that R and L are represented by the same character in Japanese).

    Rumi had many female disciples, and women were also encouraged to participate in sema, the musical whirling ceremony of the Mevlevis. (Women usually had their own semas, though they sometimes performed together with men.) One of Rumi’s chief disciples was Fakhr an-Nisa, known as “the Rabi’a of her age.”.

    The semah performed during the service (cem) as required by Alevi and Bektaşi belief is a means of reaching God through mystical and aesthetic movements executed in harmony with the rhythm of music and song accompanied by a saz (Turkish stringed instrument) played by the zakir who conducts the service.
