Niyaz, "The Fourth Light Project"

Niyaz—known for its contemporary electroacoustic trance music that blends Sufi poetry with folk music from Iran and surrounding countries—embraces the collision of the old and new as a means to create the unique and affecting. The Huffington Post calls Niyaz “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music.” The band’s collaboration with visual artist Jérôme Delapierre is another step forward. The Fourth Light Project is a multimedia experience, combining live music and sacred dance (a dervish) with advanced projection techniques that respond to sound and music in real time. The Fourth Light Project focuses on the life and work of Rabia al-Basri, an eighth-century Muslim saint and the first female Sufi mystic.
