Nitin Sawhney has announced that he will perform his ‘Beyond Skin’ album at the Royal Albert Hall later this year. The show will mark the record’s 20th anniversary, as well as revisiting its still-relevant themes two decades on.

“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”, says Sawhney. “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 live event that marks Britain’s most culturally challenging year for decades”.

RAH Artistic Director Lucy Noble adds: “We’re very proud and excited to welcome Nitin to the Hall for this anniversary performance of ‘Beyond Skin’ – an urgent, arresting and unforgettable creative statement that sounds as fresh, timely and vital as it did 20 years ago. This special, one-off show is a unique chance to see one of the most important musicians of his generation recreating the dazzling artistic achievement that made his name: live and in full for the very first time”.

The show will take place on 26 Sep. More information here.
