Shimul Zaman is a Bangladeshi Rabindra Sangeet singer. She was born at Bogra, Bangladesh. Her mother, Tahmina Begumm is a retired School teacher. Her father, Sultan Ali (1935–2007) was a banker under whose tutelage Shimul Zaman’s rendezvous with music began at a very early age. She learned eastern Classical and then branched into Nazrul Sangeet and later into Rabindra Sangeet. On the way she received numerous accolade (for example, National Award in Nazrul Sangeet and Award in "Jatiyo Rabindra Sangeet Sammelan").

After moving to the North America, she got involved in the efforts for the continuation of our cultural heritage by running a Bengali School (Ekusher Patshala) in Raleigh, North Carolina. She took lessons from eminent Rabindra Sangeet singer Banani Ghosh while in Cleveland, OH. After moving to North Carolina she took lessons on Hindustani Classical. Now in St. Louis, MO she is fortunate to have Ustad Imrat Khan as a teacher for Sitar and vocal. Despite her initial love for Nazrul sangeet and Ranbindra Sangeet, currently she is more tuned to Modern Bengali Song. She is now singing and writing her own songs.[1] She is one of the artists of the complete Rabindra Sangeet album "Shrutigitobitan" (in Bengali: "শ্রুতি গীতবিতান") published from Dhaka, Bangladesh.
