Lunch with Niyaz: Iranian American History

Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Niyaz has created a 21st century global trance tradition by seamlessly blending medieval Sufi poetry and folk songs from their native Iran and its surrounding countries in the Persian Gulf, with rich acoustic instrumentation and state‐of‐the‐art modern electronic music. In this conversation, the artists will talk about the roots of their work and engage in a larger exploration of the long and storied history of Iranian American immigration. 

This is part of a weeklong brownbag lunch conversation series with Niyaz.
