The Lively Arts
With all the mysticism and allure of their native lands, Niyaz
seamlessly blends ancient Sufi poetry and folk songs from the Middle
East to India, with rich, acoustic instrumentation and state-of-the-art
modern electronics. This immersive multi-media experience is a natural evolution
for a group who is always aiming to redefine the boundaries of
tradition in order to unite people from different cultural and spiritual
backgrounds through our shared humanity. Led by front
woman Azam Ali whose Iranian heritage and Indian upbringing have formed
a bewitching singer of richly textured proportions, Niyaz is not
limited by tradition. With four best-selling and critically acclaimed
albums, their music has been featured in several major Hollywood film
and television scores, including “The Matrix,” “Prince of Persia,”
“Thor: The Dark World,” “True Blood,” and “Bones,” to name only a few.
