Samia Malik Company
UK Tour and Album Launch
Thursday 28 November – 7.30pm
Amardeep Dhillon – Songlines
Born in Saudi Arabia to Pakistani parents, Samia Malik grew up in Bradford. She 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.
In this electrifying new collaboration, Samia’s ‘compelling and powerful’ songs are accompanied by internationally respected Italian guitarist Giuliano Modarelli, ‘exceptional and versatile’ multi instrumentalist Sianed Jones on violin, keyboards and bass guitar, and renowned tabla maestro Sukhdeep Dhanjal.
Samia has collaborated with acclaimed world class artists, including Indian danseuse and activist Mallika Sarabhai and Baluji Shrivastav OBE, and her performances have thrilled international audiences across Europe, India and the States.
This performance also features a post-show discussion, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask any burning questions.
The majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
