View Shows

Jasdeep Singh Degun is a young sitarist steeped in the North Indian classical tradition and proudly born, raised and based in Leeds.

In May 2022, Jasdeep Singh Degun released his debut album Anomaly on Real World Records — a project showcasing an almost preternatural musicality, a way with technique, improvisation, composition and collaboration that will dazzle purists and newcomers alike. Mentored by Nitin Sawhney and working with Sawhney’s producer David McEwan, the album’s twelve tracks range from inspired sitar solos to orchestral cinematic journeying. Music rooted in the ancient repertoire of raags, the frameworks used in the improvised performances of Indian classical music, and delivered with contemporary flair.

Anomaly is my way of shining a light on Indian classical music, on the music that comes naturally to me as a product of my surroundings as well as my training

The British sitarist’s debut album audaciously mixes styles from the subcontinent and modernises it. Sawhney’s influence can be heard too
