Wish they would have done an acoustic side to Sumud like they did with Nine Heavens[/quote]
Niyaz’ six song acoustic EP features three acoustic performances of songs from the band’s 2012 electronic album SUMUD, as well as three brand new songs. Although Niyaz is dedicated to creating music which is a true hybrid of electronic and acoustic music, with roots in ancient cultures as well as the modern world, the acoustic performances and recordings play a crucial role in the process of reaching this goal. The emphasis on song structure and performance is the driving force behind the band’s music, which is why Niyaz have remained committed to presenting audiences with acoustic versions of songs from their albums.
