“Their journey across oceans can be heard in their music... This is an interesting blend of modern electronica with traditional folk songs and Su mysticism... Los Angeles meets New Delhi meets Tehran."
NPR Weekend Edition

Azam Ali, vocals

Music can be a universal line of communication, highlighting shared human values and a desire for unity. Iranian-Canadian ensemble Niyaz embraces this idea, connecting the East and the West through their music—serving as a sanctuary in the modern world of polarized ideologies and bridging the gap of understanding and tolerance. This groundbreaking new show, based on their album, The Fourth Light, is a live musical and sacred dance performance combined with interactive technologies and advanced projection and body-mapping techniques that respond to sound and movement in real time. Created in collaboration with interactive designer and visual artist Jerome Delapierre, The Fourth Light provides a unique narrative and an immersive, multi-sensory experience.

This program is part of the Moss Arts Center project, SALAAM: Exploring Muslim Cultures. This project is made possible by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals; Building Bridges: Arts Culture and Identity, a component of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; and the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
