Grammy award-winning Arooj Aftab has announced her first-ever New Zealand at the Womad Festival in March 2024.

The New York, Brooklyn-based Pakistani musician has had huge success since the release of her album VULTURE PRINCE - and album that has connected with the world - and her spellbinding performance style added her to the New York Times best concert list and seen her perform at Coachella, Primavera Sound and Glastonbury

She received even further attention when former president Barack Obama included her song on his Summer playlist 

Charlotte Ryan spoke to her earlier this week from her home in New York, ahead of her performance in NZ at WOMAD 2024

The Festival runs from 15-17 March, 2024 at Brooklands Park and the TSB Bowl of Brooklands. Tickets here
