Noah Ahmed I love genre bending/blending/breaking music, especially when the cultural lines are crossed as well. As such, I've been a fan of Niyaz since looking up more of their work after hearing the Junkie XL remix of Dilruba on Armin van Buuren's 2006 A State of Trance mix. All around excellent stuff.

about

Struggle as a metaphor is something every human can relate to. One of the most prolific and challenging forms of struggle in the world today is the plight of ethnic and religious minorities, which is the topic of Niyaz’s third album, Sumud (pronounced soomood) forthcoming on Six Degrees Records. Translating from Arabic as ‘steadfastness,’ lead singer Azam Ali chose this philosophical term as a symbolic reminder that, as she explains, ‘every human being should inherit the right to live with dignity and freedom upon the land on which they are born.’
