Rafay Rashid Album Release with NOVA ONE and EDT

July 21, 2023
8:00 pm
Rafay Rashid, born in Islamabad, Pakistan and based in Providence, Rhode Island, makes experimental pop songs that are confessional, ecstatic, and confrontational. His writing emerges as a response to growing up a Muslim kid in a post 9/11 America. Ravi Shavi, the name of his band, became a persona and vehicle for both radical healing and punk empowerment as he crafted a niche amidst the experimental noise and folk music scenes of Providence, Rhode Island in the late 00’s.
