Niyaz: Persian Fusion

Friday, November 3
Bowker Auditorium
8:00 pm
General Public: $25, $15 / Youth 17 and under: $12
Five College Students: $10, $7

Niyaz is an acoustic electronic project that brings together five musicians to form an exciting new fusion of traditional Persian music and modern electronics. The quintet includes vocalist and composer Azam Ali, multi instrumentalist and composer Ramin (Loga) Torkian of Axiom of Choice, and twice Grammy nominated producer/ remixer Carmen Rizzo. These three veteran masters have all experienced success on their own and have found a new common ground in Niyaz where the mystical poetry of Urdu and Persian Sufi poets of the 14th and 15th century forms the lyrical framework for a fresh new musical adventure.
