Love in Exile

Program text



The music of Arooj Aftab speaks of dying and living, of things and people that have gone lost, and of the reincarnation of what has vanished in memory. Born in Lahore, now living in New York, she combines the art of Sufi singing with jazzy instrumentation and contemporary electronic experiments. Aftab was the first Pakistani artist to receive a Grammy in 2022 for her album Vulture Prince. At donaufestival, she can be seen with pianist Vijay Iyer and bassist Shahzad Ismaily; her trio project Love in Exile is a journey into self-exile and the search for freedom and identity.
