"An evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music."—HuffPost "An alluring combination of medieval Persian exoticism and beats that are state of the art."—Billboard Niyaz brings the transformative, multimedia phenomenon The Fourth Light Project to The Met for a performance that blends incantatory singing, sacred dance, electro-acoustic music, and mesmerizing visuals projected through interactive body-mapping technologies. At the spiritual core of the project is Rabia al-Basri: a Muslim saint and the first female Sufi mystic who lived in the 8th century in what is now Iraq. Her revolutionary teaching and doctrines of divine love and non-duality lie at the center of Sufi mysticism.
