The Colour of the Heart
Released October 2004
A sensual and melodic sound that touches the soul’ Debjani Chatterjee Brian D’Arcy Writing in Education
'Samia Malik’s singing in Urdu is gorgeous, as are her melodies, but gorgeous though these are her writing is even more striking. She writes in the Urdu tradition of sung poetry and takes it to completely new territory by giving voice to her own and possibly a generation of Asian women’s experience in Britain. It is wonderfully powerful writing' lan Scott Resonance
Azaadi : Freedom
The new album of the tour, Azaadi: Freedom (2017) includes a 32 page full colour booklet with Samia’s original Urdu Ghazals, all translations in English and includes pages of her original visual art.
'Standout tracks’ are ‘truly moving original Urdu ghazals saturated with birha – melancholic longing’ Amardeep Dhillon Songlines
‘In a world where we are becoming more attune to divisions, ‘Azaadi’ in fact celebrates difference, individualism and originality’ Aisha Farooq DESIblitz
