Sufi trance rock

Haale descends upon New York in June, bringing her sufi trance rock. On June 22, for Celebrate Brooklyn!, Haale is opening for the legendary Malian Griot performer Salif Kaita in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

The 8 p.m. Celebrate Brooklyn! show is at the Prospect Park Bandshell, 95 Prospect Park West, and is free to all.

Haale (as in halle-lujah, or jale-peno) is a downtown New Yorker of Iranian descent. On her breathtaking full-length debut, “No Ceiling,” she draws on that heritage freely, but filters it through a contemporary prism. That is, she extracts the Persian influence of her bloodline — including the work of the mystical poet Rumi — and the Sufi trance tradition, while weaving in her fondness for Hendrix, Dylan, Radiohead, and psychedelia.
