Sanam Marvi

With compelling interpretations that draw deeply from one of the world’s great music traditions, Sanam Marvi is Pakistan’s next inspiring diviner of South Asia’s Sufi texts.

A vocal warrior for tolerance and peace, this contemporary daughter of the Sindh province is a brilliant interpreter of South Asia’s spiritual, folk, and classical poetry, with performances that balance immediacy and elegant ornamentation. Like the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Marvi’s devotional joyousness is meditative and trance-inducing one moment and thrillingly ecstatic the next. An in-demand performer too rarely heard outside émigré circles, she makes her first extended tour to the US.
