What people are saying about Hodjapasha
The show was good but got off to a slow start which initially did make me a little worried about my choice. It soon recovered though and my girfriend and I really enjoyed the event overall. Once going it is continuous and action packed
arrived early and read the displays information. we were allowed into the hall where the semma was held. shortly after it started. seats were spread out and other groups were separated from your group
A true experience. I did not expect such a detail explanation of the reason of their actions ( the Dervishes) but it was enlightening. it took almost 25 minutes of the presentation
Amazing experience, best thing we did, we felt spiritual side of music and dervish dance in beautiful place. I'm glad I bought this tickets. Highly recommend.
Set in a lovely historic building with good viewing in the round. Good explanations - via projected information - of the significance of each dance.
