Jasdeep Singh Degun: Anomaly

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Rich, cinematic and emotionally charged Indian classical and contemporary music from the award-winning sitarist, presenting debut album Anomaly.

Jasdeep Singh Degun appears with a power-packed ensemble of outstanding musicians, including Pirashanna Thevarajah, Kirpal Panesar, Kaviraj Singh and Millennia String Quintet.

Following a Sky Academy Arts Scholarship and Milapfest Musician of the Year Award in 2016, Singh Degun's music took on a new direction as he explored his roots in Indian classical music with new ideas and instrumentation.

His album features his own compositions as well as collaborations with legendary multi-instrumentalist and producer Nitin Sawhney, electronic composer Franz Kirmann (known for the smash hit BBC series McMafia), and the genre-defying percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger.

This evening, explore the depth, variety and epic scale of Indian music. Presented by Milapfest.
