Described by the Huffington Post as “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music,” Niyaz—led by vocalist Azam Ali and multi-instrumentalist Loga Ramin Torkian on oud and kamaan—seamlessly blend medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from their native Iran with rich acoustic instrumentation and modern electronics.

The result is a distinctively twenty-first-century global trance sound. Through music rooted in but not limited by tradition, Niyaz encourage social and political awareness, exploring themes such as the plight of immigrants and of ethnic and religious minority groups. The band’s latest album, The Fourth Light, pays tribute to the eighth-century Sufi poet Rabia al Basri, and features lyrics in Farsi, Dari, Turkish, and Urdu. Don’t miss this chance to hear the new tracks live!
