Performance: Arooj Aftab, Vijay Iyer, and Shahzad Ismaily in “Love In Exile”

Presented by the Moss Arts Center.

$20-$55, $10 students with ID and youth 18 and under

Three accomplished musicians forge a singular voice incorporating their distinct backgrounds and vast histories of collaboration. Spellbinding vocalist Arooj Aftab is the first Pakistani American to win a Grammy; MacArthur “genius” Vijay Iyer is an influential pianist; and multi-instrumentalist, composer, and bassist Shahzad Ismaily has performed with Lou Reed and Tom Waits. Together, they create timeless, one-of-a-kind performances of haunting collaborative soundscapes. Aftab describes the project as “about self-exile, and the search for freedom and identity, and finding it through love and music.”
