Arooj Aftab - vocals
“Aftab’s ethereal voice swirls and dives in the delicate, complicated motions of her country’s long musical heritage.” ~ The Boston Globe
An internationally acclaimed Sufi Musician, Vocalist and Songwriter, Arooj Aftab layers subtle, intricate, dynamic vocals over acoustic instrumentation, skillfully re-imagining indigenous soul with signature ‘cool.’
Paying homage to classical Sufi legends such as Abida Parveen and Reshma; neo-soul and jazz icons such as Sade and Ella Fitzgerald; and contemporary world musicians such as Marisa Monte and Fat Freddy’s Drop, Aftab presents an original, interactive sound embraced by young and old, South Asian and beyond.
