Love in Exile is a new project offered by Arooj Aftab, Vijay Iyer, and Shahzad Ismaily based on their recently released recording by the same name. This project creates lush, haunting collaborative soundscapes of meditation and yearning, described by Aftab as “about self-exile, and the search for freedom and identity, and finding it through love and music.” 

Aftab is a semi-classical, minimalist composer, songwriter, and singer. She was recently awarded the Grammy for Best Global Music Performance and is the first ever Pakistani artist to receive a Grammy Award. Iyer is one of the leading music-makers of his generation. His honors include a MacArthur Fellowship, a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a United States Artist Fellowship, a Grammy nomination, and the Alpert Award in the Arts. Ismaily is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. He has recorded and performed with an incredibly diverse assemblage of musicians, including Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed, Tom Waits, and Jolie Holland to name a few.
