Composer, arranger and improviser; consummate soloist and generous collaborator; custodian of tradition and restless innovator, multi-award winning sitarist Jasdeep Singh Degun is an anomaly indeed. Unconstrained by genre, the Leeds-born virtuoso’s extraordinary skill and creativity are reshaping the musical landscape for his peers, and for generations to come.

 

Following the release of his debut album on Peter Gabriel’s Real World label in 2021, he recently turned his hand to the intersections of Indian and classical music. As a resident of Opera North in 2022, Jasdeep reimagined Monteverdi’s Orpheus, which thrilled audiences and critics alike. Earlier this month, he made history as the first sitar player to win a Royal Philharmonic Society Award.

On the operatic stage, in the studio and on the concert platform in venues from Westminster Abbey to the Ampitheatre in Doha, Jasdeep is forging powerful new musical forms. “It’s really not a matter of different worlds meeting”, he reflects. “It’s just me: as much as I’m immersed in Indian classical music, I’m a product of this country; I’m a British composer”.

It’s a rare treat to have Jasdeep with us this year and we know you’ll go mad for his perfectly crafted performances - don’t miss it.
