Love in Exile
Arooj Aftab, Vijay Iyer, + Shahzad Ismaily
Presented in partnership with Texas Performing Arts
Grammy Award–winning vocalist Arooj Aftab makes her Austin debut with the Love in Exile Trio, featuring two of her most trusted collaborators: polymath pianist Vijay Iyer and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily. Transforming sound into sculpture, the trio creates lush, haunting collaborative soundscapes of meditation and yearning. Their quietly powerful, almost telepathic communication lends itself to experimentation and creates a sound as described by Aftab as “about self-exile, and the search for freedom and identity, and finding it through love and music.”
“All three of these musicians have proven that they are singular talents, that they can take center stage and bend music to their will. On Love in Exile, they’re confident enough in their abilities to merge and meld into something simpler but no less impressive. No definitions required…akin to visiting some sort of beautiful, strange sonic landscape made from strings, keys, and breath.” — Rolling Stone
