Rightly recognised as one of the world’s most creative yet modest artists, Montreal based Mercan Dede continues to impress audiences with the explosive energy he perpetuates on stage. When Dede takes the stage as part of the Secret Trio, he hovers at the side behind his turntables and electronics, occasionally picking up a traditional instrument to drift in sweet breathy strains.

Turkish born DJ and producer Mercan Dede has found the sweet spot between electronic and traditional sound and after performing in almost every corner of the globe while Topping the BBC World Music charts.

Don’t miss this extraordinary performance of music and stagecraft floating a profound message of understanding and reconciliation.

The collective’s trance melodies match the mesmerizing spectacle of the whirling dervish dancing. This ceremonial form of active meditation is rooted in Sufi philosophy, believed to be seen as a symbolic imitation of planets orbiting the sun as a means of reaching the source of all perfection.
