Nitin Sawhney - Journeys - 150 years of immigration - Royal Albert Hall

Royal Albert Hall, London, London, United Kingdom

Friday, October 29, 2021 - 19:15 to 21:15

Following a sell-out show in 2019 where he performed seminal album Beyond Skin in its entirety, acclaimed musician and composer Nitin Sawhney returns to the Hall in 2021 for a headline concert as part of Journeys, a new festival celebrating 150 years of immigration, curated by Nitin himself.

This special concert will include a commission created specifically for the festival alongside selected music from Nitin’s new album, IMMIGRANTS, in which he revisits and builds upon the themes and ideas explored in 1999’s Beyond Skin. All this, of course, alongside Nitin’s huge back catalogue of recorded work and albums.

Due to be released in March 2021, the album is a musical celebration of immigrants across the world, featuring and showcasing work inspired and contributed to by artists who identify themselves as immigrants, are from immigrant heritage, or simply wish to express support of those who have found themselves judged or disadvantaged by pure accident of birth. Nitin will be touring the album in full throughout the UK in March 2022.

Do not miss this unique concert featuring one of the most important musicians of his generation performing this incredible new work as part of the Hall 150th birthday celebrations.
