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 by artist Jérôme Delapierre and the sacred dance of the dervish to create a shared experience that’s both sensual and devotional.
