Sufi Rock from Lahore and Karachi
March 17, 2012, 8pm – RISD Auditorium
Bollywood stardom comes to the FirstWorks stage!
With 150 albums, 50 international tours and 5 million hits on YouTube, Arif Lohar is a superstar in the Punjabi world, but many Americans know him by his music (“Bend It Like Beckham” soundtrack), not by name.
Arif invites the compelling young “Neo-Sufi / Global Soul” vocalist Arooj Aftab to join his band for an unforgettable evening of pop/folk/rock from the other side of the globe.
