A Canadian multi-disciplinary artist of Kashmiri and Punjabi descent, Mariam (aka Myrh), is a poet, vocalist, and a multi-disciplinary artist. In 2016, she began taRka, a multi-media collaboration project (with an inter-galactic scope!) where her latest album, ‘Water Print by MyrCurry’ is a collaboration with Enigma Curry. Mariam’s first album, ‘Dreamspeak’ with USA-based musician Unearth Noise, was launched by Amsterdam’s Lullabies for Insomniacs in 2018. Along with poems published in various literary collections and in a textbook for high school students, her first collection of poetry ‘Not To Understand’ was published in 1994. She joined Theatre in the Rough, a youth advocacy group in 1998, co-founded Surrey Muse in 2011, and by 2016, in combination with launching Purple Poppy Press, a digital publisher, she published a second collection of poems with lyrics and drawings titled ‘These Tales Are True’. After studying Philosophy and Creative Writing at Douglas College, Mariam works as the Media Producer and Art Director of Surrey Muse Arts Society (SMAS). .
