Haniya Aslam Trio with featured artists

Part of the 15th Annual Small World Asian Music Series, sponsored by TD Bank.

A singer, composer, musician, and producer, Haniya has been dubbed a ‘songwriter extraordinaire’, whose music is filled with diverse influences, from Pakistani folk and Qawwali to classic rock and Turkish funk. In 2007, Haniya formed the band Zeb and Haniya with bandmate Zeb Bangash, going on to achieve international recognition with their debut album, 'Chup'. A year after its release, Chup, was singled out by Time Magazine Asia for “... a complex sound that has hints of Dylan yet still calls itchy feet to the dance floor”. This is a rare opportunity to see her in such an intimate setting.
