Recorded live at GRAMMY® winner Arooj Aftab’s triumphant sold-out headline show at London’s Barbican Centre on June 17, 2022. Available for the first time on vinyl, and pressed on opaque red vinyl.
Led by Arooj Aftab (vocals), side A of the vinyl features Anoushka Shankar (sitar) accompanied by band members Darian Donovan Thomas (violin), Maeve Gilchrist (harp) and Petros Klampanis (bass) on two live tracks. Side B features the studio recordings of “Udhero Na (ft. Anoushka Shankar)” and Arooj’s GRAMMY® Award-winning hit “Mohabbat” from Vulture Prince.
“This show in London was hands down one of our best of the year… the audience was large in number, wild with excitement and exclaim, diverse as could be, appropriately hushed and moved, rowdy and laughing… all the things we love Vulture Prince to be,” Arooj said, describing the performance. “Performing with Anoushka was an incredible honor, and at times, I was close to tears to be witnessing it happen at all! A night for the books for sure.”
