World music for the XXIe Century
Described by the Huffington Post as "an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music, Niyaz (which means “yearning”), first stepped onto the world stage in 2005 with their infectious self-titled debut album appearing at #1 on iTunes. Describing their sound as “Sufi Electronica”, Niyaz has created a 21st century global trance tradition by seamlessly blending medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from their native Iran and its surrounding countries in the Persian and Arabian Gulf, with rich acoustic instrumentation and modern electronics.
