A 24-part drama, produced and aired by the BBC to over 50 million viewers world-wide, her character Zara is the childhood icon of many as a British-Bangladeshi bridging two worlds (both East and West, and into the supernatural!). She’s equally at home on screen, as she is on stage and has been the lead in musicals, traditional end-on theatre, is an actor/musician, and has directed/dramaturgh/produced and acted in many immersive shows.

Continuing to inhabit a multi-dimensional space, she is a VO artist traversing animation, docu-dramas, books, and podcasts and was a BBC Norman Beaton Fellowship finalist.

As a musician she is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer. She was the first Sitarist Explorer to perform in Antarctica on the first ever Antarctic Biennale, she’s been on tour on 4 other continents, is equally at home performing in jazz festivals as at Glastonbury, featured on BBC, Wonderland, Songlines, Google Arts and Culture, and the British Music Collection.

Shama is the Artistic Director of the Art/Science performance company Jugular Productions, producing immersive theatre and hybrid experiences, installations, performances, salons, and games.

Bringing together this extensive knowledge and work Shama founded NeuroCreate – using AI and Neuroscience in a symbiotic digital design to enhance human creativity, performance and wellbeing.
