Now hear this!
My friend Gary Mattingly introduced me to Niyaz on the way to last year's Yule ritual. He played me their album, Nine Heavens. I downloaded everything of theirs I could find the next day, and I think I've played the first track, "Beni Beni", ten times today. They are an international band based in Los Angeles. I have a new singing idol in their frontbeing, the marvelous Azam Ali.
