Grammy nominee Arooj Aftab is performing at the North Beach Bandshell, Wednesday, March 23rd

The Grammy-nominated artist performs at the North Beach Bandshell this week.

If two years' worth of COVID plus recent world events have left you feeling drained and upset, perhaps the music of Pakistan-raised, Brooklyn-based Arooj Aftab could be just the thing to put you in a more tranquil state of mind.

NPR's Tiny Desk Concert team has called Aftab's blend of South Asian Sufi, jazz fusion and electronica "an antidote for stressful times."

Aftab, who appears this week at the North Beach Bandshell, is up for two Grammy Awards — Best Global Music Performance and Best New Artist. The latter is given to artists who make a notable impact on America's music landscape.
