The Huffington Post calls Niyaz, “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music.” Based in Montreal, the duo blends medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs with acoustic instrumentation and modern electronic sounds. Their most recent album, The Fourth Light, is a tribute to eighth century Sufi mystic Rabia al Basri.

Based in Montreal, NIYAZ was founded in 2004 by captivating vocalist/composer and two-time JUNO Award nominee Azam Ali, and multi-instrumentalist/ composer and JUNO Award nominee Loga Ramin Torkian. Today with three best selling and critically acclaimed albums released on Six Degrees Records, all of which have debuted at #1 on iTunes and garnered the band an incredible amount of media attention including features on NPR and PRI, Niyaz continues to tour internationally and build on its impressive and loyal fan base worldwide. Since 2005 Niyaz has performed in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, India, Russia, Poland, Dubai, Mexico, Finland, Slovenia, Italy, Portugal, Croatia, Morocco, Tunisia, and Austria. Their music has also been featured in several major film and television scores, which include, True Blood, Nip Tuck and Crossing Over.
