Multi-award-winning musician and composer Nitin Sawhney returns to the Royal Albert Hall for a special one-off show to mark 20 years since his seminal album, Beyond Skin.
Sawhney has had a rich and varied career since the album’s 1999 release, working across music, film, television, theatre and dance as a producer and composer, and was the recipient of the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement award in 2017.
This is a unique chance to see one of the most important musicians of his generation recreating this culturally iconic work, live and in full for the very first time.
Beyond Skin remains as significant today as it was 20 years ago, as Sawhney explains:
'In this year where Brexit negotiations, political turmoil and chaos have brought issues of identity, nationality, race and religion into focus once more, the themes of Beyond Skin are more relevant than ever. Featuring a host of talented musicians and guests, the show will seek to not only recreate and reflect upon the journey of the album, but also forge an unforgettable event that marks Britain’s most culturally challenging year for decades.'
