On November 27th 2012 The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance will welcome British Indian musician, producer and composer Nitin Sawhney for an ‘In Conversation With’ talk at its London facilities.

The talk will take place during an Outreach Event the Institute is hosting with BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors), as part of its developing partnership with the association.

Now signed to Universal Publishing, Nitin has made 9 studio albums, been nominated for a Mercury Music prize, received an Ivor Novello nomination, and won a MOBO, two BBC Radio 3 awards and a Southbank Show award. He has also scored over 50 films for cinema and television. Hiscareer spans production and composition work with Sting, Cirque Du Soleil, Shakira, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Taio Cruz, Imogen Heap, Anoushka Shankar and many others.

This event demonstrates the Institute’s commitment to supporting the creation of original music and engaging with and recognising the positive influence of differing musical cultures. BASCA hasbeen developing an outreach project with Diaspora, the music foundation that supports the wealth of musical talent found throughout the UK’s diverse communities. The project’s goal is to build stronger relationships with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) music creators and represent a broader range of musical genres.
