Samia Malik is launching her new album Songs to Heal and Empower to celebrate the start of her UK tour. Accompanied on tabla by the revered maestro Sukhdeep Dhanjal, her new live show is a unique combination of soaring Eastern melodies, powerful and heartfelt lyrics in Urdu and English, electronics, deep bass grooves and visual art. Her dynamic, evolving work has enthralled audiences across Europe, the States and India.
British Pakistani singer songwriter and artist Samia Malik 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.
