      EVENT DETAILS
      *CANCELLED* Nitin Sawhney: Past, Present and Future Unplugged

      Due to unforeseen circumstances, Nitin Sawhney cancelled his North American tour, including this event. So there will be no concert on November 2.

      Nitin Sawhney has one of the most distinctive and versatile musical styles, combining electronica, Indian music, and acoustic. He has firmly established himself as a world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer, and cultural pioneer. Sawhney has become a latter-day Renaissance man of the musical world, making important contributions to performing, composing, film, dance, theater, and even video games.

      Often appearing as an artist-in-residence, curator, or musical director at international festivals, Sawhney also works tirelessly for musical education. He is a recipient of four honorary doctorates from British universities, and in 2007 turned down an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for ethical reasons. Nitin Sawhney has made nine studio albums and written more than forty scores for film and television, including the BBC series "The Human Planet," Mira Nair's film The Namesake, and two film scores for live performance by the London Symphony Orchestra.

      Sawhney's 2011 studio album, Last Days of Meaning, previewed at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London. Last Days of Meaning features a stunning performance by legendary actor John Hurt, and follows the epic, metaphorical, Dickensian journey of a lonely and intransigent man. Nitin Sawhney's 2013 box-set release, ONE ZERO, was recorded live-to-vinyl as a celebration of his tenth album. His newest studio album is due out in 2013.

      See this unplugged show supporting the album's release.
