Arooj Aftab, Vijay Iyer and Shahzad Ismaily

Love in Exile

Wye Stage

Three Grammy-winning, world-class American musicians – vocalist Arooj Aftab, pianist Vijay Iyer and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily – recorded Love in Exile in their adopted hometown of New York City. The album sees them create a unified voice, despite their distinct backgrounds. Bask in their singular, gorgeous sound with this performance of their work. Aftab is the first Pakistani to win a Grammy; Iyer is a MacArthur genius and Grammy nominee; and Ismaily’s sensitivity and technical acumen has made him a legend among musicians like the late Lou Reed, for whom he was a session player.
