Shama Anwar

A British-born Bangladeshi, 26 year old Shama Anwar grew up listening to everything from grime to Bollywood; her sets naturally take the same course.

Mixed genres have always been an influence within her life through her culture as well as her personal preference, which is now reflected in her work. Shama began throwing parties at the Ace Hotel in London in early 2013. She then went onto throwing parties all around London with the likes of Nick Hook, Eclair Fifi, Bok Bok and many more. These parties then extended throughout Europe and the states including Berlin, Paris and New York, where she has also spent a significant amount of time collaborating with brands and artists. Her career in music, though, had begun prior to this in early 2011, through PR in Europe, having worked with a number of various different brands and artists such as Adidas, Vice, Dr Martens, Nike and more. As her career progressed, Shama ended up working with the likes of streaming platforms such as Tim & Barry TV, Boiler Room & NTS Radio Live in London. She now lives in New Delhi, India and works at boxout.fm.
