Mercury prize winner Talvin Singh OBE is a tabla player who has worked with Björk, Madonna and Massive Attack – creating an innovative fusion of Indian classical music and drum and bass.

Talvin will be performing live, selecting compositions from his career. There will be a chance to ask questions at the end.

The percussionist, producer and composer, is renowned for creating the bridge between Indian and electronic music. Drawing Inspiration from the classical Indian arts, he has managed to sculpt a unique sonic landscape. Singh’s synthesis of electronic music and eastern aesthetic, is often referred to as Asian Underground, one of the most exciting movements in the history of British music. He has taken the tabla to the cutting edge with the most unimaginable sonic creations, which has ultimately helped him to demystify Indian classical music, and therefore inspire a whole new generation of musicians and producers of contemporary music in India and the south Asian diaspora worldwide. Singh’s influence has also spanned to the visual arts, dance and film.

Having worked and collaborated with a diverse range of artists, such as, Sun Ra, the late Ustad Sultan Khan, Terry Riley, John Martyn and Yoko Ono, he still continues to be as explorative and imaginative in his solo career as well as curating new ventures in contemporary music. Singh’s debut album, titled ‘OK’, achieved huge acclaim and won Singh the Mercury Music Prize in 1999. He has also been honoured with the South Bank Prize for popular music and was awarded an OBE in 2015 for Services to Music. Talvin continues to perform internationally, write and produce music and to work as a music director for various creative projects.
