Niyaz and Azam Ali

Seamlessly blending Sufi poetry and traditional folk songs from their native Iran with rich acoustic instrumentation and modern electronic rhythms, Niyaz creates a mesmerizing, distinctively 21st-century global sound. Led by vocalist Azam Ali and multi-instrumentalist Loga Ramin Torkian on oud and kaman, the five-member band presents a groundbreaking multimedia experience that features dancer Tanya Evanson, one of the first female whirling dervishes. This is the Boston debut by Niyaz.
