This Labor Day weekend, join Asia Society Texas for a concert featuring Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Arooj Aftab. Aftab’s hauntingly beautiful music, “an incandescent love letter to the light” (Pitchfork), has been rapturously praised across the globe and this evening will be a celebration of her gorgeous work.
Arooj Aftab is a Brooklyn-based Pakistani vocalist, music composer, and producer. She works in various musical styles and idioms including jazz, minimalism, and neo-Sufi. She is the first-ever Grammy Award-winning Pakistani female artist, winning Best World Music Performance for her song “Mohabbat” in April. She was Spotify’s March 2022 artist of the month and sings on and co-produced the hit Coke Studio song “Mehram.” On her most recent album Vulture Prince, the composer’s remarkable voice, backed by a team of renowned musicians, transports listeners to worlds once known.
“The year’s biggest musical revelation came from Pakistani composer Arooj Aftab, who set traditional Urdu ghazals amid harp and strings that rippled and ran as clear as a fresh stream.” The Guardian, “The Best Music of 2021”
