    Niyaz Presents The Fourth Light Project

    The Fourth Light Project combines live music and sacred dance performance with interactive technologies. The audience is invited inside the art to share in a unique narrative and multi-sensory experience. Described by The Huffington Post as, “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music,” Niyaz has created a 21st century global trance tradition, blending poetry and folk songs from their native Iran and surrounding countries, with rich, acoustic instrumentation and modern electronics. The artists’ four best-selling, critically-acclaimed albums all debuted at #1 on iTunes and their music has been featured in The Matrix, True Blood, Alias and more.

    Darlene Love

    The New York Times raves; “Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of Rock and Roll as Eric Clapton’s guitar or Bob Dylan’s lyrics.” This Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has done it all…from the highly successful Lethal Weapon film Series and the Oscar winning Twenty Feet From Stardom to appearing on Broadway in Hairspray and Grease. As part of Phil Spector’s wall of sound hit factory, her Billboard hits include: "He’s a Rebel," "The Boy I’m Gonna Marry," "Wait Until My Bobby Gets Home," "He’s a Fine, Fine Boy" and many others. Rolling Stone has proclaimed Darlene Love to be “one of the greatest singers of all time.”
