Leading and Playing Music for the Dances

If you have ever played as a musician for the Dances, you realize that there is more to Dance musicianship than simply knowing the correct notes or rhythm; that a deep attunement to the sacred phrase, to the intent of the leader and to the energy of the circle is required.  We hope that these materials will help provide musicians a sense of connection to the rest of the Dance musician network and will support the development of refined, attuned musicians!


Open Tuning for Sufi Dancing

DUPNA is pleased to introduce this wonderful resource from our friend Khalif Ramananda Rohsenow, who has tirelessly helped promote and support Dance circles and Dance events in the Bay Area and Northern CA and is dedicated to helping new musicians gain access to guitar instruction. To that end, he has created a beautiful website with videos and manuals. These are given as a heart offering and no profit is sought for this labor of love.

Khalif Ramananda writes: "I created this site because I felt there was a need for a simple way for beginners anywhere in the world to learn to play guitar for the dances, without needing an instructor to be physically present."
