‘A of extraordinary power and Joan Baez-like eloquence’ Geeta Doctor The Hindu

‘Iconic songs to heal and empower’ Amrit singer Wilson Outline

Born in Saudi Arabia to Pakistani parents, Samia Malik has lived in the UK since she

was a child. She writes and performs songs in Urdu and English based on traditional

Urdu Ghazal (a highly refined union of poetry with music) extending and subverting

the form to explore contemporary issues around identity, race and gender. Samia is

also a visual artist: her live shows are supported by translations and projections of

her original visual art. She has collaborated with acclaimed world-class artists

including celebrated Indian danseuse and activist Mallika Sarabhai and ‘sitarist to the

stars’ Baluji Shrivastav OBE: Samia’s dynamic, evolving work has thrilled

international audiences across Europe, India and the States.

‘Truly moving original Urdu ghazals saturated with birha – melancholic

longing’ Amardeep Dhillon – Songlines
