Arooj Aftab played The Met’s Temple of Dendur (pics, video)

Arooj Aftab has been on the road supporting one of our favorite albums of 2021, Vulture Prince, and Thursday (9/22) found her in NYC for a very special show, at The Met's magnificent Temple of Dendur. The gorgeous surroundings amplified the beauty of Arooj's hypnotic, otherworldly music, and she was joined by frequent collaborators Darian Donovan Thomas on violin, Gyan Riley guitar, Maeve Gilchrist on harp, and Shahzad Ismaily bass. A truly memorable evening!

See pictures by Ellen Qbertplaya, and a couple of fan-taken videos below.
