The Dawn Light
Persian Poetry and Soul

The Dawn Light is a project by Angela Iimura, lead vocalist,  who has a rich and angelic voice & Oj Newcomb on base guitar which also features highly acclaimed musicians Brodie Graham on guitar when performing as a Trio, Charles Wall (aka Bobby Alu) on drums when performing as a Quartet, Rohan Seekers on Keys when playing as a Quintet and Gareth Mewes on Violin when playing as a sextet. 

After many years of deeply connecting with the profound verses of the great mystic poets – Hafiz and Francis Brabazon – Angela began to use their poems as lyrics, writing songs that could be described as a dear companion to the human spirit, shedding beams of light, joy and inspiration on the path of life.

To share the love, Angela teamed up with her husband and music partner Oj Newcomb (John Butler Trio, Afro Dizzi Act, Band of Frequencies) to bring to life ‘The Dawn Light’, named after one of Francis Brabazon’s poems.

Influenced by artists such as Erykah Badu, Ledisi, Allen Stone, Emily King, D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Jon Cleary, Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim, The Dawn Light’s sound is angelic, playful, moving and deeply soulful, paying homage to these great poets. This combination of musicians, words and music will surely inspire your heart and soul to dance.

“The heart is a thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with Love.”
