- New interpreter of South Asian music
The music of singer, composer and producer Arooj Aftab hovers between neo-sufi, minimalist Southeast Asian classical music, jazz and electronics. She became interested in music in her teens and has been a major contributor to the independent Pakistani music scene. This year, she became the first Pakistani artist ever to win a Grammy. Last year's album, "Vulture Prince", was not only on the best album charts at The Guardian, Pitchfork, TIME, Uncut and Songlines Magazine, but also made a place on Barack Obama's much-publicized summer playlist.
