Haale, Ay Del

Haale (as in halle-lujah or jalepeno), is a Bronx-born woman of
Iranian descent whose name means the 'halo around the moon.' Her songs
are trance-inducing, rhythmically propulsive, and lyrically engaging
tapestries that draws on both Persian mystical and American
psychedelic musical traditions.

She released two mesmerizing EPs in January 2007: 'Morning' and
'Paratrooper' -- and spent the year touring across the country and in
Europe, at venues such as the Bonnaroo Festival, SXSW, and the Mimi
Festival in France. She performed at David Byrne's Nonesuch-sponsored
series at Carnegie Hall, recorded with Sean Lennon (on 'Before the
Skies'), and shared the stage with such diverse artists as the
legendary Hugh Masakela and Odetta.

While back at home from touring, Haale and producer/percussionist Matt
Kilmer went to work on their first full-length debut, 'No Ceiling.' It
was released on March 18, 2008, to critical acclaim, hailed "one of
the year's most memorable releases," by the Boston Globe. See press
page for more 'No Ceiling' press . The album features players Shahzad
Ismaily, Mike Gamble, Doug Wieselman, Chris Hoffman, and Johnny
Gandlesman and co-writing by Matt Kilmer and Dougie Bowne.

On the breathtaking full-length debut, "No Ceiling" Haale explores
themes of transformation and evolution, singing in English and Persian
through a riveting soundscape of percussion, psychedelic guitars, and
soaring strings. (kaynak: http://www.haale.com/index.htm)
