Sajia Sultana

Sajia Sultana


A collision between a world of visionary female singer-songwriters and the rich tradition of Bengali art and folk song.


Musically I've explored on my first recordings the region between those two seemingly contradictory traditions, opera and Hindustani classical song. Lyrically I've been trying to write Bengali art songs in English, all the rage and romanticism in the heart of a Bangladeshi Muslim feminist bellydancer.


Bengali Winter - CD, to be released in the spring.
