Arooj Aftab She is an artist who does not like to repeat anything; She is in a constant process of reinterpreting, reimagining and resignifying her music. Whether as a singer or as a composer of soundtracks (with Emmys and Oscars under her belt), she as an admirer of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Abida Parveen or as a fan of Jeff Buckley and Princeas a music revolutionary Qawwali or the ghazals or as an importer of contemporary, classical or jazz avant-garde, Aftab only contemplates doing in her career what no one has done before.
