Love in Exile was recorded live over one day with minimal editing; each listen reveals new aspects of this soundworld.
Lyrics in Urdu.
The three world class musicians met in their adopted hometown of New York City and forged a singular voice, stemming from a time Vijay suggested that he and Arooj, who were on the same bill at a show years ago, improvise together as one act - repeating this again in 2018, adding Shahzad to round out the trio that has existed since.
