Description:
Currently based in Montreal, Niyaz was founded by Iranian-born vocalist Azam Ali and multi-instrumentalist Loga Ramin Torkian, both JUNO Award nominees. Described by the Huffington Post as "an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music," Niyaz--which means "yearning" in both Farsi and Urdu--blend medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from Turkey, India, and their native Iran with acoustic instrumentation and modern electronic rhythms. The result is a mesmerizing folktronica, a distinctively 21st century global trance sound that crosses not only stylistic and cultural boundaries but generational ones as well. The music is enhanced by Ali's rich, captivating vocals and by conscientious, spiritual lyrics that aim to create music with a uniting, social message.
