Description

Known for its electroacoustic trance music, Niyaz is “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music” (Huffington Post). The band embraces the collision of the old and the new as a means to create something entirely its own. With The Fourth Light Project, Niyaz pays tribute to Rabi’a al-Basri, the first female Sufi mystic and poet. Persian folk songs and poetry meld with the immersive multi-media projections of artist Jérôme Delapierre and the sacred dance of the dervish to create a shared experience that’s both sensual and devotional.
