Arooj Aftab has announced a tour of North America this fall, in support of her current release Vulture Prince. Arooj will be performing various shows with the Vulture Prince Ensemble including Maeve Gilchrist, Gyan Riley, Shahzad Ismaily, Kenji Herbert, Greg Fox, Petros Klampanis, and Darian Donovan Thomas.
The new dates include multiple festival appearances, headlining performances, and one show supporting Caroline Polacheck. Following her North American stint, Aftab will undertake more dates in Europe.
“Vulture Prince is about revisiting places I’ve called mine,” says Aftab, “places that don’t necessarily exist anymore. It’s about people, friendships, relationships—some relationships that were unexpectedly short term, and how to deal with that.”

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Arooj Aftab channels artists from Terry Riley to Abida Parveen and has played venues from Lincoln Center to (Le) Poisson Rouge to the Museum of Modern Art. Aftab’s liminal sound floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry and electronic trance, jazz structures and states of pure being. In 2020, Aftab composed music for the Academy Award-shortlisted film Bittu and sang on Residente’s Latin Grammy Award-winning single “Antes Que El Mundo Se Acabe.”
