Concert: Niyaz, featuring Azam Ali

Gorell Recital Hall, Second Floor Sutton Hall

With all the mysticism and allure of their native lands, Niyaz seamlessly blends ancient Sufi poetry and folk songs from the Middle East to India, with rich, acoustic instrumentation and state-of-the-art modern electronics. This immersive multi-media experience is a natural evolution for a group who is always aiming to redefine the boundaries of tradition in order to unite people from different cultural and spiritual backgrounds through our shared humanity. Led by front woman Azam Ali whose Iranian heritage and Indian upbringing have formed a bewitching singer of richly textured proportions, Niyaz is not limited by tradition. With four best-selling and critically acclaimed albums, their music has been featured in several major Hollywood film and television scores, including “The Matrix,” “Prince of Persia,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “True Blood,” and “Bones,” to name only a few.

Exhibit Opens: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallary, First Floor Spowls Hall

Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity.

The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.
