Hello everyone! We’re back from Europe & Turkey. It’s been a great summer and fall for us. The concerts were all a tremendous success, thanks in great part to all our fans who turned up in large numbers to support us. The most memorable concert for us was in Istanbul where we shared a wonderful evening with 600+ enthusiastic fans and friends who gave us a welcome we will never forget. The venue we performed at had a maximum capacity of 600 people, so it was very sad for us that so many people who stood outside in the rain that night, were unable to attend the concert. But we are thrilled to announce that next summer we will return to this beloved city to perform at an open air theater which holds 5000 people. We are all very excited about this.
Next year will be a touring year for us and we hope to find time in between to begin work on the next Niyaz album. In February, we will be doing a small tour on the east coast in the US. We have also been invited to showcase at RIDEAU in Montreal the same month. In April, we will return to Europe for a number of concerts in Germany, Slovenia and France. Then in June/ July we will go on tour in Canada. And finally in July/August we will return to Turkey and Europe for concerts in Istanbul, Italy and France. The details for all concert dates will be posted in the coming months.
In the meantime, Loga & Azam are both working on their solo albums . Azam & Loga will also be featured in the highly anticipated major motion picture release Prince of Persia- The Sands of Time. Together they created an original piece of music for the film and had the great honor of working with one of the greatest composers in the world, Harry Gregson-Williams.
As Azam & Loga will be moving to Montreal in February, so we are planning on giving two goodbye concerts in Los Angeles and San Francisco. We will announce the dates as soon as we have locked them. For all those who have not been able to attend a Niyaz concert due to logistical reasons, we are currently working a DVD which will feature live performances in Istanbul, Paris and Los Angeles, along with other surprises. We hope to complete this DVD by the end of 2010 and make it available through our website.
We are grateful to all of you for making another year such a memorable one for us. We are truly looking forward to seeing you all in 2010. You are welcome to check out some of our latest pics on the media page as well as a wonderful full length article in the latest issue of the prestigious fRoots magazine which we have posted on the reviews page.
We wish you all the very best for the coming new year.
