The music is enhanced by Ali's rich, plaintive vocals and by conscientious, spiritual lyrics that explore the plight of immigrants and minority ethnic and religious groups. Niyaz-who from the beginning have strived to create social and political awareness through their work-use the beauty of their music and the artistry of their lyrics to speak out against injustice and oppression.
