Who: Niyaz
Where: The El Rey
When: Saturday, February 7th @ 9:00pm
Last year the exotic electro-central-Asian trio, Niyaz, released their double disk, Nine Heavens on Six Degrees Records to much acclaim. One disk is a triptacular and clubbed out journey through devotional Sufi music and the other disk is a much more traditional, acoustic take on several of the same songs on disk one.

Hear "Ishq - Love and theVeil" from Nine Heavens:

On tour Niyaz consists of hypnotic vocalist Azam Ali, multi-instrumentalist Loga Ramin Torkian, oud virtuoso Naser Musa, tabla player Salar Nader, double bassist Miles Jay, and Ray Lee on keyboards. With a lineup like that, a Niyaz show promises to be a great experience.

See Niyaz at The El Rey this Saturday, February 7th @ 9:00pm
