With compelling interpretations that draw deeply from one of the world’s great music traditions, Sanam Marvi is Pakistan’s next inspiring diviner of South Asia’s Sufi texts. A vocal warrior for tolerance and peace, this contemporary daughter of the Sindh province is a brilliant interpreter of South Asia’s spiritual, folk, and classical poetry. Her performances balance immediacy and elegant ornamentation, lending new light to her well-loved repertoire of sufi, ghazal, qawwali, and folk songs. An in-demand performer too rarely heard outside émigré circles, she makes her first extended tour to the US.
