Asia Society and BAM present
On tour as part of Center Stage
In a rare New York appearance, superstar Pakistani singer Sanam Marvi comes to BAM for one night only, presenting an evening of South Asian folk and devotional music at its most intensely sublime. Singing poetic texts in Urdu, Sindhi, and Saraiki, Marvi transforms songs in the ebullient qawwali and other traditions into fierce clarion calls for tolerance and understanding. Four musicians join Marvi onstage as she wields her nimble voice like a sceptre, inducing an ecstasy of belonging for the sake of peace.
This presentation of Sanam Marvi is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. Center Stage Pakistan is made possible by the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. General management is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc.
