Starting: 8:00 PM


Catch Brookly-based Arooj Aftab and her quintet for their Florida debut at the iconic North Beach Bandshell. Aftab’s liminal sound floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry and electronic trance, jazz structures and states of pure being. NPR praised her single “Lullaby” as one of the “Greatest Songs By 21st Century Women+”; the New York Times called her “Island No. 2” one of the “25 Best Classical Music Tracks of 2018”; she has been awarded a 2020 Academy Award composing music for film. If that weren't enough—Barack Obama added Aftab to his 2021 Summer Playlist.

This event is part of the Rhythm Foundation’s ongoing Axis of Love series. Launched in 2017, the series' vision is to inject positivity and empathy into the global conversation. It highlights artists from the Middle East and North Africa, creating a meditative space with instrumental, traditional and innovative sounds.
