Having previously worked with orchestras across the world including Metropole Orkest, Britten Sinfonia and London Symphony Orchestra, Mercury Prize nominee and recipient of the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement award, Sawhney is inspired by music from around the Globe as he responds to themes of multiculturalism, politics and spirituality. The wealth of artists he has worked with includes Sir Paul McCartney, Anoushka Shankar, Akram Khan, Pink Floyd and Jools Holland. He has released over 20 albums and written around 70 film and TV scores including Netflix’s Mowgli and the BBC’s award-winning Human Planet series. Together with the Hallé and guest artists, with whom Sawhney regularly collaborates, this multi-talented artist will perform tracks from his forthcoming album Identity, as well as exploring the concept behind it.
