Jasdeep Singh Degun

Sitar, Voice

Awarded the Yuva Sangeet Ratna 'Musician of the Year' at the National Indian Arts Awards 2016, Jasdeep is fast establishing a name for himself as a rising star of the Indian classical and contemporary music scenes. An active musician and sitar player, Jasdeep has performed internationally in many high profile productions and prestigious venues, including Buckingham Palace, the Amphitheatre in Doha, and the Royal Albert Hall at the 2014 BBC Proms to name a few.

As a British-born composer, Jasdeep has developed a well-rounded sense of musicality and sensitivity towards not only Indian Classical music but many other different styles and genres of music. He has gained a rich experience in collaborative work across art forms and regularly creates music for classical and contemporary ensembles. He has recently been commissioned by Opera North to write and perform a new concerto for Sitar and Orchestra titled ‘Arya’, to go on tour in 2020.

Jasdeep has worked with musicians and producers such as Guy Chambers, Cerys Matthews, Melanie C, and Vangelis as a regular studio session musician and was awarded a Sky Academy Scholarship to work on ‘Anomaly’, his debut album of contemporary and classical music. As part of the scholarship, Jasdeep is currently mentored by the illustrious multi-instrumentalist and producer, Nitin Sawhney. Jasdeep continues to push the boundaries of Indian classical music in the UK as well as developing his unique versatility as a promising young artist.
