We kick off our program series NISA, with a performance from Arooj Aftab, a young neo-Sufi singer originally from Pakistan. This performance, and the series, is supported by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts, and puts the spotlight on female artists from Muslim cultural backgrounds. After spending most of the week visiting Baltimore high schools and universities, Arooj will be making her Creative Alliance debut, with a hauntingly beautiful program combining Sufi traditional poetry with a forward-thinking experiment approach.
