WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL SITE OF SAMIA MALIK
Born in Saudi Arabia to Pakistani parents, Samia Malik has lived in the UK since she was a child. Drawing widely on her multiple heritages by combining, extending and subverting traditional forms, Samia’s ‘uncompromising’ yet ‘hauntingly beautiful’ work explores contemporary issues around identity, race and gender through powerful songs and visual art.
‘For over 25 years Samia Malik has shown that music can be healing as well as entertaining. Azaadi: Freedom charts a compelling journey towards liberation through powerful Urdu and English songs, art and spoken word’ Sarah Albinali Eastern Eye
