Arieb Azhar is a Pakistani Sufi & Folk music artist. At the age of 19 he went off to Croatia where he was exposed to Balkan and gypsy music and his musical discoveries led him to perform on the streets, in pubs and clubs, concert halls, and festivals, with musicians from Croatia,Bosnia, Macedonia, Bolivia and Ireland.In 2004 he returned to Pakistan in order to immerse himself in the local music since he felt that the music culture of pakistan forced one to be highly self-critical and brutally honest about oneself and those survived this grind turned out to be truly great musicians.Always nurturing a love for poets of the Sufi and humanist tradition,Arieb has now found an expression that he can proudly call his own.He has appeared on Coke Studio, released two albums and won great local and international acclaim for his unique voice and music.
