Event description

Description

For over 25 years Samia Malik has been exploring her experiences as a woman from a Pakistani, Muslim background growing up in the UK through writing, teaching, recording and touring her unique Ghazal songs in Urdu and English and more recently, through visual art.

In Azaadi: Freedom, Samia’s powerful live songs chart a compelling narrative journey towards liberation through art. Accompanied by exceptional and versatile Bharatnatyam dancer Anne Tiburtius, to a soundtrack of world class musicians including ‘sitarist to the stars’ Baluji Shrivastav OBE and projections of translations and Samia’s art, Azaadi: Freedom is a unique unmissable visual and musical experience.
