Sydney Opera House presents An Evening with Nitin Sawney, a special, one-off concert showcasing the career of one of the world’s most prolific and versatile creative talents.
Atmospheric, captivating and powerful, Sawhney’s live performances are a lush musical odyssey. Sawhney’s exquisitely crafted, intelligent arrangements blend his diverse musical influences, from traditional south-asian instrumentation to electronic, flamenco and drum & bass.
For his Concert Hall debut, Sawhney will be joined by Aref Durvesh on Tabla and Dholak, Ian Burdge on Cello, Ashwin Srinivasan on Bansuri flute & vocals and Martyn Kaine on Drums, as well as guest vocalists Tina Grace, Nicki Wells and Rahel.
Sawhney is a virtuosic musical figure with an astonishing output as a producer, composer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist. With 9 studio albums, over fifty film scores, his own BBC Radio 2 show, regular DJ appearances at London’s Fabric and various festivals, Sawhney is considered a modern day Renaissance-man. His many accomplishments include a Mercury Award nomination, a South Bank Award, four honorary doctorates and countless awards and accolades for his scores for orchestra, theatre, dance and videogames.
