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.
