Artist website:


Dr. Samia Mahbub Ahmad
is a Hindustani (North Indian) classical vocal musician who has been studying, performing and teaching this ancient 5000 year-old genre of music of the Vedic times, in North America, South Asia and Southern Africa for the past two decades.

Samia has apprenticed with Grandmasters Sri Tapan Baidya, a pioneer of this genre in Bangladesh, and Vidushi Padma Shri (one of the highest recognitions from the government of India) Sumitra Guha in India. Samia has used her classical base to also specialize in Nazrul Sangeet (song compositions of the Rebel poet Kazi Nazrul Islam), Bhajans, and New Age music, melding Hindustani classical music with contemporary melodies and rhythms of South Asia, South Africa, and the West. She has expanded her collaborative work to combine vocal music with dance choreography and visual arts. Samia's performances and teaching explore the notions of spiritual unity in religions that share a common cultural base.
