Our group was invited to participate in the Turkish Week, sponsored by the Tekirdag and Gostivar Municipalities and organized by the Macedonia Turkish Women's Association.  The Turks there met us with great enthusiasm.  Because our Honorary President Hasan Çıkar is from Skopia the trip took on even greater meaning.  The concert and Sema Ceremony we presented in the Skopia Tefeyuz School and Gostivar Sport Center were very well received by the people.

Our group presented Sufi/Mystic Music Concerts and the Sema Ceremony in the capital of Croatia, Zagreb, and also in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Because this was the first time such a program had been offered in Croatia, tickets for the two thousand-seat theater in Zagreb sold out days in advance, and we were the focus of the Croatian people and media.  Our group was met by the Turkish Ambassadors in both Zagreb and Belgrade.  Ambassador Dicle Kopuz gave a dinner in honor of our group in Zagreb.  One day later Ambassador Hasan Servet Oktem received our group at the embassy in Belgrade, and offered a dinner also.



Fifty members of our group were the specially invited  guests of Galipoli  Mayor Cihat Bingol, at the municipality's annual SARDINE FESTIVAL.  Close to 1500 people from Canakkale and the surrounding areas attended the evening's program.  The spirituality of the music and Sema presented by the Contemporary Lovers of Mevlana made them the favorite of festival.    VISIT TO GALIPOLI MEVLEVI MONASTERY    For the third time our group made a visit to the Galipoli Mevlevi Monastery, the largest one in Turkiye.  The restoration of the historic building is still going on, but we were told that it would be finished soon.  Our Honoray President Hasan Çıkar told Mayor Cihat Bingol that our group is prepared to be of service in every way in order to bring new life to the monastery.



The Contemporary Lovers of Mevlana presented a Sufi music concert and Sema Ceremony in the Phaselis Antique Theatre in Antalya as part of the second Phaselis Festival organized by Lila Muzik.  The audience experienced a spiritually uplifting evening, and the program was filmed and shown on TRT 2  TV station at various times during the month of Ramadan.
