With enthralling performances that draw deeply from one of the world’s great music traditions, Sanam Marvi is Pakistan’s next inspiring diviner of South Asia’s humanist, folk and Sufi texts. A vocal warrior for tolerance, pirituality and peace, her renditions balance immediacy and elegant ornamentation, lending new light to a cherished repertoire of Sufi, Ghazal, qawwali and folk songs. An in-demand artist too rarely heard outside émigré circles, this rising star’s revelatory interpretations of the sub-continent’s mystics reach across cultural borders and generations to offer solace in our uncertain and often troubled times.
