A heartbreaking, exquisite document of the journey from grief to acceptance... An incandescent love letter to the light.
Bhanuj Kappal, Pitchfork

Fresh from a win at the 2022 Grammy Awards, Arooj Aftab, one of the rising stars of the music world performs for the first time ever in Vancouver.

Aftab’s liminal sound floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry and electronic trance, jazz structures, and states of pure being. While many liken Aftab’s transcendent singing voice to that of the great Abida Parveen, Aftab’s music is uniquely uncategorizable.

Aftab has been championed by NPR, who praised her composition as one of the “Greatest Songs By 21st Century Women+,” and her album Vulture Prince has been on every list of the best albums of the year, including Barack Obama’s.

Aftab, backed by a team of renowned musicians, transports listeners to worlds once known, and as yet unknown. This is a rare chance to listen to one of the most exquisite artists of our time.

Part of the Indian Summer Festival, this concert is co-produced with the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
