Pasatiempo - - ON THE COVER - — Paul Wei­de­man

On Satur­day, Nov. 24, Gig Per­for­mance Space presents a mu­sic and dance event fea­tur­ing Latif Bo­lat and Serap Yil­maz. Bo­lat spe­cial­izes in Turkey’s an­cient de­vo­tional mu­sic, singing and ac­com­pa­ny­ing him­self on the baglama, a long-necked lute, in a style that is soul­ful and spell­bind­ing. His reper­toire in­cludes songs re­lat­ing to the tra­di­tional Sufi prac­tice known as zikr (re­mem­brance of God). As Bo­lat es­tab­lishes the ap­pro­pri­ate mu­si­cal at­mos­phere, Yil­maz dances in the mes­mer­iz­ing man­ner of the whirling dervishes. The per­for­mance at Gig (1808 Sec­ond St.), be­gins at 7:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is $20. Visit gigsantafe.com for de­tails.
