NIYAZ presents “The Fourth Light Project” 
Saturday, November 18, 2017 | 8 PM | Rialto Center for the Arts

Discount Code: NIYAZ4THLIGHT
The Fourth Light Project is a tribute to the first female Sufi mystic and poet Rabia Al Basri who was born in the 8th century in Iraq. She is recognized as a saint as she was the one who set forth the doctrine of Divine Love and non-duality, which today lie at the heart of Sufi mysticism. Described by the Huffington Post as, “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music”, NIYAZ has created a 21st century global trance tradition, seamlessly blending poetry and folk songs from their native Iran and surrounding countries, with rich, acoustic instrumentation and state-of-the-art, modern electronics.

An Immersive Multi-Media Experience, described as “mystical music with a modern edge,” NIYAZ seamlessly blends medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from Iran and surrounding Persian Gulf countries with rich acoustic instrumentation, sacred dance performance, and state-of-the-art electronics. Azam Ali’s exquisite vocals in Dari, Farsi, Urdu and Turkish transport one instantly to distant lands and states of mind. NIYAZ creates a synthesis of sound, space, image and light, inviting the audience inside the art to share in a unique multi-sensory experience!
