Sanam Marvi 

When: Wed., April 12, 7:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $10-$20

Opportunities to "make it" in Pakistan's sparse music industry are few and far between, but vocalist Sanam Marvi has gotten pretty close. Armed with a spellbinding voice, she got her big break through performing on two different Pakistani television programs in 2009, and in 2011 she earned the award of best singer from the University of Sufism and Modern Sciences in Pakistan. Though she sings in multiple languages—Punjabi, Saraiki, and Sindhi—you don't need to understand any of them to be moved as her lilting voice wanders effortlessly across haunting melodies. She arrives in Chapel Hill as a part of Carolina Performing Arts' Sacred/Secular: A Sufi Journey series, which aims to promote a better understanding of Islam beyond Western perceptions of how it exists in the Middle East. —Allison Hussey
