Billy Corgan To Play “Sonic Impressions” Of Sufi Mystic’s Poems

Madame ZuZu’s Tea Shop in Highland Park, Illinois, have announced a special in-store performance by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, in which he will play “sonic impressions” of poems written by the 13th century Sufi mystic Rumi. Madame ZuZu’s is a combinational tea shop and art studio, and one of Corgan’s latest business ventures.

According to Madame ZuZu’s official website, the performance will take place on 30th March at 1pm, and promises four sonic impressions from Corgan. There is no admission fee, but quite limited space in the tea shop, who are taking reservations for the event. The store also shared a tea-related video of Corgan and tea expert Rodrick Markus in discussion, which tea-loving readers can check out below.

Billy Corgan has certainly been keeping busy with musical incarnations of spiritual texts. Last month he performed an eight-hour ambient electronic interpretation on the theme of Siddhartha, author Herman Hesse‘s 1922 novel about spiritual self-discovery, at the teahouse (Check out the eight hours of footage below). He’s also been busy developing a wrestling series for AMC, and his band Smashing Pumpkins recently announced that they’ll drop two new albums in 2015.
