Shama Rahman...


Sitar-player, Singer/songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, actress/spoken word artist and scientist (PhD in neuroscience), Shama Rahman performs material from her debut solo album.
This project uses sitar in the context of storytelling, musically arranged to sit within layered harmonies and complex grooves of a 6-piece band ranging within keys, sax, violin, guitar, double bass and percussion.

From jazz to dubstep, punk to folk (bulgarian, bengali and english!), spoken word, trip hop to hip hop, swing to bosa nova, she writes and arranges all music and lyrics from her poems and the focus is storytelling crossing a lot of genres doing so. Poetic Music or Musical Poetry if you will-with a whole heap of energy!!
