Arooj Aftab is a Brooklyn-based Pakistani composer, vocalist, and producer who’s “reimagining traditional South Asian music for today,” according to Pitchfork.

Her distinctive musical dialect draws on jazz, minimalism, Hindustani classical music, and neo-Sufi sounds. In 2022, she became the first Pakistani artist to win a Grammy when she won the Best Global Music Performance award.

Her latest album, Prince Vulture, has received rave reviews, earning a coveted spot on the Best Albums of 2021 lists from NPR, Time, and The Guardian, among others
