Pakistan’s Arooj Aftab Wins First Grammy Award

Arooj Aftab has been gaining popularity for some now through her music, which fuses ancient Sufi traditions with inflection of folk, jazz and minimalism. She’s also up for the coveted Best New Artist prize, which will be presented during the main Grammy telecast later Sunday.

“I think I’m gonna faint. Wow thank you so much. I feel like this category in and of itself has been so insane,” she said while accepting her award. “I made about everything that broke me and put me back together. Thank you for listening to it and making it yours,” she added.

The singer was born to Pakistani parents in Saudi Arabia, and spent her teenage years in Lahore before relocating to Boston to study musical production and engineering at the Berklee School of Music.

Ever since the news broke out, Pakistani celebrities along with the star’s fans have been congratulating Arooj Aftab on social media for her win.
