Samia has had the privilege to present for a very wide range of audience. Although the languages she sings in are Bangla, Hindi, Sanksrit, and a few other South Asian dialects, given that she is fluent in English enables her to communicate with audiences from different parts of the world and who have represented a wide range of age structure from the very young to adults to senior citizens. Samia's travel experiences have enhanced the opportunities to present for audiences of many age-groups in Bangladesh, India, South Africa and of course, the US. It has been a wonderfully enriching experience for her. Based on this experience, Samia is willing to present for:
1. Young children and adolescents - Elementary, Middle and High School age-group individuals.
2. Adults - in Universities and other educational/research/activist settings -- involved in the Arts and Humanities and other multi-disciplinary fields;
3. Adults -- individuals, groups or organizations involved in creating awareness and/or fund-raising for a worthwhile cause;
4. Adults -- individuals, groups or organizations involved in creating awareness of the historical evolution of the rich multi-cultural nature of classical, traditional and folk arts currently existing in the US.
5. Audiences representing different faiths, languages, and cultures existing in the US who are interested to learn about the South Asian music and culture.
6. Very importantly, senior citizens.
7. Audiences who seek to experience music as a therapy. The Indian Classical music is deeply entrenched in the ancient philosophy of the connectivity to the divine power through pure sounds. This is yet another form of meditation which assists in decreasing stress and experience inner peace.
The message behind Samia's willingness to present to a very diverse audience is that she firmly believes that music, no matter which part of the world it is from, when practiced and presented in its true essence, becomes a universal language and has the power to cross cultural, ethnic, racial, political and lingual borders and can unify people. As a global citizen, she feels that after years of training, no matter how modest, it is time to give back.
