Sufi Rock from Lahore and Karachi
U.S. Premiere Tour!

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.

Presented by FirstWorks as part of our year-long Caravanserai project—introducing American audiences to Sufi artists, filmmakers & musicians through a series of intensive community engagement and performance programs. This project is an initiative of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts, administered by Arts Midwest.
