For over 25 years Samia has been exploring her own experiences as a woman from a Pakistani, Muslim background living in the UK through writing, teaching, recording and touring her unique style of bilingual songs in Urdu and English, based on the Ghazal form. She originally trained, as an adult, in North Indian vocal techniques with Baluji Shrivastav OBE. Samia’s multimedia shows now incorporate her music with translations and projections of her more recent visual art. Samia has toured throughout the UK and in Europe with Sianed Jones, Cris Cheek and Sukhdeep Singh and across India with celebrated dancer/activist Mallika Sarabhai with Darpana’s Academy of Music and Art.
