Skirball Cultural Center to Welcome Niyaz Featuring Azam Ali, 5/28Skirball Cultural Center to Welcome Niyaz Featuring Azam Ali, 5/28
by BWW News Desk - Apr 30, 2015

The Skirball Cultural Center presents a live performance by the mesmerizing Iranian duo Niyaz, featuring vocalist Azam Ali and multi-instrumentalist Loga Ramin Torkian. Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as 'mystical music with a modern edge,' Niyaz-which means 'yearning' in both Farsi and Urdu-blend medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from their native Iran with acoustic instrumentation and modern electronic rhythms. The result is a distinctively twenty-first-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, 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.
