Sufi adventures in Hi-Fi
Arooj Aftab has a way of finding the most lush and luxurious context for her unforgettable voice. The Grammy winning, Brooklyn-based artist makes music that floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry, electronic trance and jazz structures. It draws on a vast range of influences, but is also intimate and immediate. Aftab’s latest album,Vulture Prince, showed her true range and was featured on best releases of 2021 lists by The Guardian, 6Music, NPR, Pitchfork, TIME, Uncut, Songlines Magazine and has received unprecedented critical acclaim. The song Mohabbat made Arooj Aftab the first Pakistani artist ever to win a Grammy.
